Mondia bikes were produced from 1933 until 2003. They were made in Switzerland by Jeker-Häfeli & Cie. In the 1960s and 1970s Mondia bikes and frames were very popular in the U.S. They had nice workmanship and sported beautiful air-brush multicolored paint jobs. They had a great ride. They would just eat up the miles without beating up the rider.


57 Mondia "Super" road frame and fork. Used $400.00

57cm seat tube X 58.5cm top tube

  • We are fairly sure this is a Mondia. The locations of the braze-ons that were cut off from under the down tube and seat stay match those of a 1972 Mondia. Also the serial number on the wrap-around cap of the left seatstay (176033) is close to that of another 1972 Mondia Super. The holes in the headtube align with a Mondia headbadge.
  • The frame is French-threaded, both the bottom bracket (35mm x 1mm) and the fork (25mm x 1mm threads, takes 22mm diameter stem).
  • 147mm head tube
  • 26.4mm seat tube
  • An earlier owner cut off the top tube brake cable stops as well as a guide for the cable between the stops, the dropout eyelets and the seat stay centerpull cable stop.
  • This is not the factory paint job, it was resprayed by a former owner.
  • That is chrome on the seat tube, not a silver decal.
  • Campagnolo fork ends and dropouts
  • Nervex lugs
  • 120mm rear dropout spacing
  • Both frame and fork were built using pinned lugged construction.

This frame was built with care. You can see how the tubes entering the bottom bracket were carefully mitered to fit perfectly.
