conical spark plug caps - original?

I have seen some conical spark plug caps in some pictures. Were these original? Does anyone have good pictures of these? Are they available anywhere?

Re: Bicarburatore / Sport seat

Just got these pictures from Italy of 3 different seats. Supposedly these are all Rumi seats, but I don not know if they are all "original".

Re: Bicarburatore / Sport seat

I just purchase a seat on eBay, and it looks like I will be able to modify the frame to get it to fit. Should be an interesting project! In case others are interested, this was the seat I bought: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1950s-Ducati-MV-Guzzi-Bianchi-Mondial-VITELIA-175cc-cafe-racer-NOS-dual-seat-2/...

Re: Bicarburatore / Sport seat

I just found this picture of a bike that was sold in Italy.
More pictures here:

Perhaps all of the seats with a wide spot in the center like this have springs?

Re: Bicarburatore / Sport seat

Hugomez, I also have the larger, more curvaceous, 18 liter tank. That was how I had it for the motogiro, with lots of gear attached. I had redone the seat to add padding. https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/1955-Moto-Rumi-125/i-pDC9BjL/0/344f590d/L/IMG_3730-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorc...

Re: Bicarburatore / Sport seat

Hugomez, Wow, that is lots of stuff, and confusing! Italian Seats, Argentinian seats, Long Seats, Short Seats, Sheet metal seats, Seats with springs! And now I see some of the seats hang off the back of the fender. Maybe that is from using the wrong seat for the big tank? Can anyone summarize these ...

Bicarburatore / Sport seat

Does anyone have photos of the metal framework of one of these? Did the original seat have springs? How was the frame constructed? My seat is made of steel sheet, no springs of any type. It is rather hard! I've always assumed it was not original. Here is a picture of the underside, looking back towa...

Rumi Museums / Shops near Bergamo?

I'm going to be in Milano next week and could go to Bergamo. Are there any museums that I could see that specialize in Moto Rumi? I think Lavetti's shop is in Bergamo, but I don't know if they welcome visitors? Also the Rumi Historic Register is in Bergamo, but I don't know if they have a collection...
