Long time Bike-urious reader David N has just acquired a few motorcycles from a collector who specialized in big German twins and small Italians – he’s keeping the Germans but this little Mondial needs a new home.

A similar bike was offered at Bonhams Las Vegas in 2013 with an estimated sale price between $9,000 – $12,000, though the listing was amended and the bike may not have actually gone through the auction. Per that listing, the 125cc motor was a simplified version of the racer that Mondial was using with plenty of success at the time. “In 1956 a wholly new chassis with swingarm suspension and telescopic forks was offered, housing a new engine design of more conventional split-crankcase construction, the ‘Champion’ series…three variants were offered: Turismo, Lusso, and Special.

This example was restored some time ago and the seller states that if shows “very little, if any, wear.” Everything is said to work and it’s currently titled in Vermont. Find this Mondial for sale in Kempton, Pennsylvania for $7,900 here on Craigslist.
