Between 1949 and 1957, F.B. Mondial dominated the Motorcycle World Championship. With four championships in that span, Mondial was so dominant that Soichiro Honda was given a race bike by owner Count Boselli — which became the standard for Honda's motorcycle program. This Mondial was ridden by Cecil Sandford to the 250cc World Championship in 1957, winning six rounds including the Isle of Mann TT. Once one of the most advanced motorcycles on the planet, this Mondial has an important place in racing history.
