FS: 1970 Mondia Special

This is a restored 1970 Mondia Special. Made of metric Reynolds 531 it has Campagnolo dropouts. This bike has been bouncing around a bit and may have even been listed/sold in the forum before.

This bike has been repainted a cream color with a blue head tube and has correct reproduction decals. Paint is in very good condition with only a few small flakes/scrapes. Lugs are outlined in red and outlining is of fair quality. Head tube lugs, fork crown and fork ends and stay ends are chromed. Chrome is in good condition. Some pitting and discoloration is evident.

New cables and housing, bar tape, repro Mafac hoods. Completely cleaned, lubed and serviced.

This Mondia has a 56cm (ctc) seat tube, 56cm (ctc) top tube frame and has the following components:
  • Campagnolo 26.8 seat post (some deep scratches, see pictures)
  • Mafac Racer center pull brakes and levers with reproduction hoods
  • Campagnolo headset
  • Campagnolo Record rear derailleur, Patent 71
  • Campagnolo 144 bcd crankset and bottom bracket
  • Campagnolo Record front derailleur
  • Campagnolo shift levers
  • Campagnolo pedals
  • 3ttt Record stem and handlebars
  • Miche Competition low flange hubs, Mavic GP4 700c tubular rims
  • vintage Brooks Professional saddle
All components are in very good condition with the possible exception of the seat post which has some pretty deep scars and marring. It has been polished and looks pretty good. Bike weighs around 24lbs as pictured.

$800 plus actual shipping (Shipbikes or Bikeflights) to CONUS.

I have a 1973 Mondia Special - it is one of my favorite bikes. I hope that the buyer will be as happy with yours as I am with mine. Good luck with your sale.

Another 1972 Special owner happy with mine! That one looks beautiful , restored maybe? The Swiss did a good job on these bikes , they are lighter than they look and comfy on long rides.

Nice bike.

I also have a Mondia built about 1977 but I don't know which model it is.
It is a very smooth ride but the Suntour Skitter derailleur still confuses me.
