Hi, how are you?

I tell you that without looking, I found Rumi Formichino; in almost state of manufacture, completely of Epoca.
I leave some photos; I hope you like them.
Greetings.
Claudio

Thanks for sharing the photos of this Formichino. Are you going to restore it or keeping that good original state?

Thanks Hugo.

For the moment the idea is to leave it in its original state, and I will only make sure that it works correctly. When I have news I upload a photo.

Greetings.

Very nice find Claudio, I hope to restore one of my Argentine rumi,s in its correct form when I get chance, these pictures of an unmolested one are great reference for me. I managed also to bring back a sidecar for rumi with me, do you know of other rumi scooter sidecars over there ?. Regards Graham

This blue one looks to be a very early one with mostly Italian made parts, I have rumi,s like this that I got from Argentina, but also others with more Argentine parts - seat brackets - fuel filler caps - handlebars - speedometer etc etc , do you have pictures of machines with these parts fitted, as when I do my Argentine specific one I want to use as many of these parts as possible. I have so many different types of various parts I am unsure what is correct and what was fitted later by individual owners. Thanks Graham

Graham, thank you very much for the comments.
At the moment I do not know anyone who has a sidecar, but if I find out I'd like to inform you.

Graham, how are you?

In the link below you can see my other Rumis armed all with Argentine parts; but I do not know which parts left the factory and which users changed.
The ones that I can tell you is that this last one is 99.99% original Argentine, in the case of needing some more detailed photos thank you let me know and I send them.
Greetings.

Beautiful Rumi !!!
Very well preserved in time !!!
Really, my congratulations for finding a great machine!
It is increasingly difficult to find bikes in this state of preservation.
