Le nom de « Mondial » apparut pour la première fois en 1948 quand les frères Boselli (FB pour Fratelli Boselli) introduisirent une machine de course de 125 cm3 révolutionnaire à deux ACT. Le chef-d'œuvre miniature de Mondial mena tout naturellement le constructeur de Bologne à disputer son premier Championnat du Monde l'année suivante et se révéla aussi dominateur en 1950 et 1951. Après une pause assez brève, Mondial retrouva la gloire des Grands Prix en 1957 en remportant le titre en 125 et en 250 cm3. Le FB Mondial de route offerte ici fut la propriété à Milan (Italie) de Giuseppe Del Latte, ancien pilote essayeur de MV Agusta.. D'origine et non restaurée, cette machine ne peut que relever le niveau d'une collection et elle sera la bienvenue l'année prochaine dans le Moto Giro d'Italia. Aucun document n'accompagne ce lot.

    The name 'Mondial' first appeared on a motorcycle in 1948 when the Boselli brothers (FB = Fratelli Boselli) introduced a revolutionary double-overhead-camshaft 125cc racer. Mondial's miniature masterpiece duly brought the Bologna manufacturer its first World Championship the following year and proved equally dominant in 1950 and '51. After a relatively lean spell, Mondial returned to Grand Prix glory in 1957, taking both the 125cc and 250cc World Championships. The FB Mondial roadster offered here was previously owned in Milan, Italy by Giuseppe Del Latte, a former test rider for MV Agusta. Original and un-restored, the machine would make a superb acquisition for any collection and be welcomed in next year's Moto Giro d'Italia. There are no documents with this Lot.
