The engine is this bike should look familiar to you – but everything else may not. It’s a Condor A350, and it utilizes a Ducati 350cc single (valve springs, not desmodromic). 3,000 examples were built between 1973 and 1979, and they starting trickling out into the civilian world around the turn of the decade.

Condor typically employed other manufacturers for powerplants, and this partnership with Ducati was no different. Ducati tuned the engine down to better cope with low quality gas, and the package was rounded out with Grimeca wheels and brakes along with Marzocchi forks.
