I purchased a mostly-complete but very ugly 1978 Super Mondia about 5 years ago and have ridden a few hundred miles on her always with a view to one day doing as best a restoration as I could given limited funds.

I stripped and cleaned everything and had the frame dipped last year then everything went back into storage.

I have finally managed to get a spray-painty mate of mine to spray the frame and forks, got a set of decals from Serbia and have this morning finished the build.

I am waiting on a black Brooks Professional saddle to arrive and then she will be complete.

The original paint once revealled was a mid metallic blue. I've gone with a classic orange metallic - "Copper" I suppose is close.

Photos to follow soon.

Matty :)

Thanks all.

It's not my drive or fence.

The decals look right to me from photos I've seen. That's how they cane from Serbia via fleabay which was the only set I could find anywhere.
