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.

Who owns the BSA marque? I thought it was BSA Regal, they even marketed some BSA's in conjunction with MZ. But stopped in 2008. This is a British company.

Not .. Italy, but Swiss... to meet Gov't requirements.. had to be Swiss made.. Swiss frame, German electrics, Ducati engine or Spanish built engines after Ducati stopped building singles (1974?) ... wheels are interchangeable...sprocket is swing arm mounted. Last model year I believe was 1978. Used for convoy escort, recon, dispatch and Military Police duties. Should have rifles mounted n each side. Engine is detuned and mounted in rubber. 85 Mph..doubtful.. 85 Kpm..possible.
