Would be very difficult to find an original supermono these days.  Not too many built.  I have a few articles on them, the engine design was very interesting.  From memory, it was based on the 851 (not sure) but only had the one cylinder and a desmoqautro head.  There was a dummy con rod and an accomodating bulge in the case.  I assume the dummy rod was an attempt to balance the offest of a single cylinder. 

If you can find one, for sure get it. It would be a very good item for the collection.
