FB Mondial Record Sport: a roaring comeback

FB Mondial Record Sport 48cc

The Record Sport 48cc was manufactured by FB Mondial, a company the Boselli brothers had founded in Piacenza in 1929.

The brand’s success had reached its height in the 1940s, with a number of MotoGP World Championship victories going to both racers and constructors.

A period of stagnation followed, until Mondial Moto presented this model at the 1968 International Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan.

It was an instant success, and a roaring comeback.
