Rumi 200 GT (from Argentina)

Post by Rumi's » Mon Jul 15, 2019 5:27 pm

Hi all!
A while ago, I got a new Rumi model for my collection: Rumi 200 GT (Gran Turismo).
It is a very rare and difficult to see model.
The bike will give me a lot of restoration work, but I consider it a good base to recover it.
Some pieces that are not seen in the photo, they delivered me in a drawer.

I wanted to share some photos with you, and if someone has information about the model to share or help, I would appreciate it.
Regards,

Juan Nizio

Hello Juan. Do you know what the bore and stroke sizes are for this engine?

Hi all.
Thank you very much Graham, Arthur and Hugo for your words.

Arthur: Thanks for the Ebay number, I will try to buy that Rumi 200 GT card.

Hugo: you had the chance to meet the project in person !!! ;)

There is a lot of work in this project !!! But slowly, I'll try to get this bike back to the tracks!

Regards,
Juan Nizio

One of my first doubts is the light switch that it has.
Will it be original?
The electrical system, I do not have a plan, and I still do not study the subject. Surely when I study it I can verify if the switch is original.

I have attached a photo of a classic model (??) of formichino, and a photo of the model that brought this rumi 200GT bike.

Hi everyone:
To restore this bike, it will take more work than other rumis to restore.
For example, I must manufacture the special tools, in order to extract some nuts:

Definitely one of the most difficult project (if not the most one) seen in this forum.

Looking forward to see how it end. ;)
