$50.00 Super Mondia Update.

A while back I posted an early 80's Super Mondia. I got it real cheap. Here are some update pictures. Parts just on the bike for pic's, almost ready for final assembly.

Ugh! $50 for that? You, sir, make me sick.
OK, I'll get over it if you answer a trivia question: it's obviously a "later" model, did they still stamp the serial number on the LH seat stay cap?

Wow!! I can't remember the last time I got anything so nice for only $50. Was it warm to the touch when you first obtained it?

Wow - I thought I got a deal when I paid only $50 for this Mondia:



Frame/fork, headset and bottom bracket were included, but still! Very, very nice score!

Please keep us updated as you finish her up.

Very nice, looking forward to the final build. I especially like the wheelset, Campy hubs?

Mike, I still say you should put Nuovo Record recessed calipers on that beaut. Don't make me sneak over there and put bright white Royal Compe II's on it

Incidentally, I found one of those Universal Mod. 77 calipers floating about at the LBS yesterday. Can get it for you if you want a spare.

The BIBA stem looks nice; definitely complimentary to the build. Better than sticking a run-of-the-mill Cinelli 1A on it.

Thanks for all the nice comments. It's a 1983 model. Large flange NR hubs laced to open pros built by yours truly.

Dang, fifty clams is a steal for a Mondia! That is what I call guilt free theft! Congrats, that is going to be a totally sweet ride.

Nope, it was just sitting in the used bike area of my favorite LBS. Helps to know the owner too...

Stop it, Stop it, you're killing me! My local shop owner has some vintage bikes at exorbitant prices.

Damn, it's my size. Keep track of your children- they're liable to be ransomed in exchange for your Mondia.
