Mondia Super. I never see these (dont want to know value)
 
When I saw this 1978 Mondia Super on ebay , without the centerpull brackets, I jumped on it (I don't like centerpull, personal issue from being teased as a young racer with no money for Campy sidepull)

I remember lots of these from when I was younger. Very fresh in my memory. Now I can't find very much at all about Mondia Super, even with the most powerful resources in the history of mankind at my fingertips. (PS I know it says "Super Mondia", but we always called the ones with chrome lugs "Mondia Supers". I don't know why.)

I paid $200, and I am building it up as a "casual bike". All Campagnolo, maybe even Super Record (see previous personal issue).

What does anyone know about these, besides being Swiss? (soft spot for me). (PS has French BB, *whew*)

The "Super" is not part of the marque name but rather a model name.

It would be more accurate to say "Mondia Super."

The Super is awesome. Love the pinstriping and beautiful paint jobs.

Mondias are underrated in my book, many had very nice lug work and detailing..the super is "SUPER".
I would like a pick of the entire bike, if clean and no dents 200.00 is a good deal IMHO.
It should polish up quite well but be careful with that pinstriping, I would also take a good look at the seat stay.

1973 Super Mondia Special
I bought this a year or so ago and LOVE it. Almost completely original. I chose to keep the Mafac center pull brakes as they work very well. I run Campy side pull on my other classics and I don't think they stop as quickly. I ride this bike frequently with no problems . Since this photo I have put a set of Campy Superleggerra titanium spindle pedals .https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...2b97a6548.jpeg

A phone message was waiting for me, when I got home (no cell phone then). Bought this a half hour later and it proved to be a very nice bike to ride...

1973 Mondia Special

I'm kinda of envious. I would love to add a Mondia Super to go with my Mondia Special.
