Re: Amazing coincident in Vietnam!!!!

Hugo, yes that is quite a coincidence! And in Vietnam, of all places.

Spectacular Formichino, too. One of the best polishing jobs I have seen.
Strange signal horns (I assume), though. They look like sirens.

Great story, great pictures! Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Re: Autoclasica 2019, in Argentina.

Thank you guys for your words! I'm very happy, because really i had much work with this machine, but happily i arrived to the desired target. None of this, could be possible without the selfless help from a handful of friends. I am very grateful to everyone who did it. This show, it's really the mo...

Re: Moto Rumi - High Performance - Sale

Absolutely spectacular Formichino! I really like those light weight front and rear fenders/mudguards.
Everything looks so very well executed. Stunning!

Wanted: Thrust ring for clutch assembly, Formichino

Restoration of the polished Formichino - still in California - is nearing completion. One small part is missing in the clutch assembly: P/N 68-423 Thrust Ring. It is item no. 18 in the illustration below. Does anyone have one to sell, or know where to buy? Also looking for a lamp holder and mounting...

Re: Moto Rumi Jr for sale

Hi, Claudio,

I bought it at an auction in January of 2004. The seller was the well known Peter Gagan of White Rock, B.C, Canada, former president of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America.

Re: Rumi Scoiattolo 1955 - New project!!!!!!!

You will need a bigger flat soon to keep all these machines in !! Uuufff, I think the only solution from now is stop bringing more bike to the house, 5 Rumi in the living room are enough (4 now + the Scoiattolo once is finished). No plan to move to another house.

Re: Moto Rumi Jr for sale

Hugo, here is my Junior with telescopic forks. This is either an Italian Junior with an Argentine engine (which I intended to correct with an Italian Junior engine) or an all-Argentine Junior. Claudio (RF125) believes it is the latter. Flyingdutchman's bike has the same fork. It is only missing the ...

Hi, I can not really give a strong opinion about this bike because I do not have a Rumi Junior, so I do not know much about the little details of this model. There are a few things that look a bit strange to me, but specially the engine number. The numbers doesn't look as the once stamped in my Arg...

Hi, Hugo. You probably saved quite a bit by doing much of the sanding and preparation yourself, even if the neighbors did not appreciate it! The seat by Dante Trezzi looks like a piece of real craftsmanship. Beautiful. The hub, spokes and rim you did look absolutely fantastic. The color match looks ...

Re: The old banger out for a thrash again

So unusual to hear of someone using a Rumi as dependable transportation - for long distances too!
It seems that these engines, once settled in, are actually quite reliable.

Nice to hear about your adventures with "the old girl".

Hi Ian Helpful pictures and hints. Yes, the mounting stud looks a bit awkward. For the Junior, I envision a bracket that curves along the shape of the muffler and then goes straight up to the mounting tab on the frame. It remains to be seen whether that will be a practical solution, or if it will be...

Re: Looking for exhaust pipes for Junior

Hi Hugo,

Ah, now I see. Brezzi must have added some photos recently. Now it does show a mounting stud.
That is very good news. Thank you for that information!

Best,
