I was riding my Nevada 750 along the highway between Ljubljana and Celje, Slovenia one day about five years ago when I passed this fellow. He waved me over and we stopped for a chat and a coffee. His name is Ivan, and he told me he bought this bike new in 1955.

While Swiss military utillized, the Condors were likely manufactured in Spain.

Cool listing at bluemooncycle.com Thanks for the heads up thunderkat59.

No, not in Spain. Condor is old Swiss manufacturer:

Great story!

Well, except for the part that the bike he's pictured with is Nuovo Falcone which was produced between 1971 and 1976.

He didn't speak English, and my Slovene is not exactly fluent. But what's a couple of decades?

Long story.... this is my Aermacchi H/D 350 Sprint. This was my first street bike, got it back after many years. Started restoring it but it really has turned into a money pit. Thinking of ether making a cafe bike or maybe a Salt flats racer. The engine is in great shape, been gone thru and ready to go.
