Is that all you have? That's gona gona cost a fortune to build up in spare's.
You'd be better off waiting for a complete one imo.

I had a baby Blata for my first bike

I wanted to do it all from scratch.just sourcing the parts out is a lil trickier than I thought.nice bike by the way

I would honestly recommend reconsidering your options.
Baby Blata's don't go wrong so they never get broken down to spare's hence why there aren't many. Coz there aren't many they're expensive.
If you want to do a build get a complete bike strip it, clean it, paint it, build it.

You'll get a complete bike for 100ish, one 2nd hand engine on eBay 200.
If you have 250 you'll be able to pick up an older Polini engined bike, far far better. Iv owned/built most of them, trust me.

I'm 6'1" and find my Blata elite a little small, couldn't imagine if fit on a baby blata.

As for parts, there's gopedscootertuning in Germany and Kuster in Holland. Blata UK don't stock anything for the elite or baby blat anymore. There's Lynn on Ebay who sells stuff for them.
