Mondia Special

I got this Mondia today.
Campagnolo except rear derailleur and the shifter.
Mafac Racer brakes, pretty sure they are original.
The serial number is 161xxx.
Should be around 72, but not sure.
Any info about the bike are welcome.
And opinions about the value too.
Thanks

'72 is a good dart throw.
I would look at the inside faces of the hub lock nuts, back side of the cranks to maybe provide a better guide.
I would expect a paint job with the second color airbrush effects adjacent to the lugs.

Please consider shortening the rear brake straddle wire and the implied longer brake cable, I just have this view that the cable yoke will bottom out against the adjuster under braking.

Or after tune up, a Brooks seat and new tires.

After Clean, lube and polish. Forget the Brooks.
