Re: Crankshaft

Thanks for sharing the photos of your project.

Is it complete?, did you get the bike in parts or assembled?

Re: Inherited Barn Find

Hi Loobieburt, Your Formichino look pretty complete and original. Looking at the engine and body numbers, I would say it is from 1960 or 1961, however would be good if somebody with more knowledges and information can confirm that detail. I see the legshield and frame of it have been cut. It is not ...

I am almost sure we have some members of the forum that are also from Kent. By the way, pass by the "Manuals" section and download as many as you want. You will find the Formichino parts catalog and many other useful files for your restoration. LINK: https://www.formichino.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=...

Re: Inherited Barn Find

Welcome Loobieburt to Moto Rumi Forum. You inherited a nice Formichino. To give you more information about it, would be good if you provide us with the engine number and body/frame number. More photos of your scooter would be also appreciated. You can find the engine number at the top of it. The fra...

Thank you Rudolf for sending me the measurements of the choke (cable type) by Whatsapp. It is a mystery why my slide (number 50) and the choke (cable type) that is coming with it, are different as the rest of Dellorto slide and choke, even if the look is basically the same with the exception of the ...

Re: Dellorto MB22A (Rumi Sport)

Hi, This all is very strange. The slide 50 I had in the MB22A with the "thick" choke, is original, but as mentioned, the choke doesn't fit in the also original slide 70 I want now to use in that carburettor. Comparing in the Eurocarb website, I see the choke (for cable type), look different as mine....

Re: Dellorto MB22A (Rumi Sport)

Here the measurements of both "choke bars".

The problem is the wide, because the long and high are very similar.

Thanks for the info. That is my problem, the photos are too large, find a way to reduce them. In your computer you must have programs to reduce the photo, but in case you don't, there are free online websites where you can also do it.

Nice to count here with another forum member from Belgium.

Been a mechanic all your life I guess you won't have much problems to restore that 1953 Rumi of your son in law. Please feel free to ask any question if you need it, we will try to answer it.
