F.B. Mondial 98 Extra 1960

Fewer than a thousand examples of the 98cc OHV four-stroke Mondial 98 Extra were produced between 1960 and 1961. Although listings appear for models Mondial 98, 98 Extra and 98 Sport, all are the same.

Documentation indicates that the chassis number should be preceded by the letter E (Extra), but to date all known specimens do not have this abbreviation. There are few if any advertising brochures and documentation for this model extremely sparse.

The original color was metallic gold and blue.
