Re: Excellent Formichino craft scale model

In this age of technology its probably possible to scan a full size bike, scale it down and 3-D print it.

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

That looks great. I thought about them being original but then considering the state it was in when you got it I dismissed the thought and decided they must be new as they didn't seem to have any wear. Anyway, well done. It is certainly been worth all the hours of work. I bet it didn't look that goo...

How did you manage to get some new rubber foot rest covers? I thought you were going to have to cut a piece of flat sheet or something.

Thanks for the links to previous years Hugo, there's certainly some fine looking machines in there. I particularly like the bottles of Rumi vino.

You just need to re-size them in any programme that will view jpg files. Microsoft Office picture viewer will do it.

Re: Feeling down !

Excuse my ignorance but why is the model of bike called "six days"?. Is it a race name or something. It seems an odd name. Or were Rumi hoping you would buy an additional bike for Sundays :-)

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

I did notice it was different. Now you have explained I can see what has been done. Better to fill the groove and it look good than to leave it and you be disappointed with the final result.

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

Just looking at the pre-restoration photos of your machine. Was the outer part of the front mudguard originally chromed?

Certainly nothing wrong with your maths. Pretty good going that. You weren't in the slip stream of the fellow in front were you?

Re: Fraud sale in Leboncoin.fr

It sounds to me like he is a crook. Even if he had a machine for sale it would be very unlikely to be immaculate as yours. It would be rather obvious when anyone went to view it that it was not the same.

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

When you strip the paint off do you use some lethal paint stripper or blast it off?

Surely sanding it off would take too long.
