Hugo you can buy spokes on eBay and cut to length and thread yourself. Just check the die of spoke, also threading tool can be obtained.

Re: Wanted Fork bridge 1st series

Hello rumisti, if you have an old one i can get a new casting done in sand cast top spec alloy for you. You could then machine yourself, use old one as pattern. Will get my son to post picture of the sport ones i had made.

Re: Moto Rumi Sport - 1951 (Fixing some problems)

Hugo the honing of the cylinders looks good, but the amount you needed to clean pistons skirts I would look at replacement pistons. Not sure what others may think.

Re: Wiring diagram for the Rumi Scoiattlo dynastart

I believe the bond three wheeler and tippin invalid car used the same system, but look on the UK Rumi Club site under for sale wanted section. Look at the Rumi that Guy Robinson is selling that belonged to his father, another solution perhaps.

the plough inn

On the Moto Rumi club UK site there is a picture outside the Plough Inn dated 1968 as an early club outing. Does any one know where this Plough Inn was located? Was it on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent?
