1974 Condor

This was a specialized military model used by the Swiss army, built by Condor using modified Ducati components. The engine unit is rubber-mounted to isolate engine vibrations, similar to a Norton Commando, and also has an external oil filter. The brackets on the frame are for mounting a sub-machine gun.
