Description

The inaugural GP World Championships took place in 1949 and FB Mondial absolutely dominated the 125 class with riders Nello Pagani, Bruno Ruffo and Carlo Ubbiali winning back-to-back-to-back championships. The company went on to take ten World, 15 French and 50 Italian Championships along with many other successes both on and off road.

The last Mondial-powered machine left the factory in 1960, but the firm continued to produce on and off-road machines powered by small capacity 2-stroke motors from proprietary makers. The 125 RCE of 1972 was the first specifically-built Mondial motocrosser, but without an official works team at the time it was successfully raced by privateer

riders. Mondial’s final competition successes came in 1976/77 with production ending soon after.

The 125 RCE offered here is powered by a 23hp 122cc Sachs 2-stroke single with a 5-speed gearbox. The bike is in very good and correct condition and comes to sale with Italian papers.
