I have not had this problem with a rumi clutch, but I have had to play around with plates to get clearance when converting lambretta,s from 4 to 5 plates on higher performance engines, regarding the springs - if the old ones have enough strength to stop the clutch from slipping in use they will be ...

Thanks Dieter,

I've called him interested in three of the items on the photos, (the rubber footrest, the small lever for the carburetor and the tool to remove the screw of the flywheel), but unfortunately he told me that is selling the complete set together.

A very RARE clutch disk

Hi All,

Talking with Rudolf by private, he has shown me this VERY RARE Moto Rumi clutch disk. Surprised by the rarely of the item, I thought probably many of you would also like to see it as a curiosity.

Have any of you ever seen another like that?
