Hello all, I am from Margate and rode around on a Bol d' Or in the early 60's along with several mates who had Tipo Sports and Formachinos. We formed a small Rumi club and we were all very proud of our rather noisy scooters. I was a teenager then and living in a seaside resort frequently invaded by groups of London scooter riders on their Vespa GS's. We would wait for them on the Thanet Way and tease them because our Rumi's could easily leave them in the dust. I still have the number plate of my original bike, 34 XKR and a damaged piston, but little else. I tried to get the now defunct 34 XKR plate transferred to my Jaguar, the XKR bit would have been great but it was not possible to do according to the licensing department. I am always on the lookout for a reasonably priced Tipo or Bol d'Or but as they are now collectors items the amount of money they are attracting is phenomenal, I think my original which was not new cost less than £100 in 1960. Anyway glad to have found this website.

Welcome Daveh to the Moto Rumi Forum.

Nice reading your Rumi story, thanks for sharing it with us.

Do you have any old photo of your Bol D'Or?, that would be awesome to see.

Enjoy the forum!! ;)
Hugo
