Baffo's Mondial

Still one of the best motorcycles I've ridden. Quick, strong and light, this is Baffo's 1953 Mondial 200cc proddie racer, and it was raced throughout the '50s. Accelerates like demon, and feels like you could ride it all day and night - no surprise, seeing as works Mondials not much different to this one cleared up in Italian road endurance events. I'll try and get it in the mag sometime. (Baffo = Italian for 'tache, hence his nickname).
