c.1953 Rumi 125cc Sport
Registration no. GML 38B (see text)
Engine no. 26996
Previously producers of miniature submarines and torpedoes in WW2, the firm headed by Donnino Rumi switched to motorcycle manufacture at the war’s end, introducing is first ‘Turismo’ model in 1950. This little gem was powered by what would become Rumi’s trademark engine, a 125cc parallel-twin two-stroke, the cylinders of which were inclined horizontally. Built in numerous different stages of tune, this wonderfully versatile motor was used to power standard, sport and competizione models, as well as a range of advanced scooters. Sadly, despite its technical innovation and engineering prowess, Rumi had gone by 1962. Better equipped and faster than the standard version, this Sport comes with an expired tax disc dating from 1975 and is offered for restoration. (It is not known whether the registration mark ‘GML 38B’ is recoverable).
