The Rumi company was founded in the early years of the 20th in Bergamo, Italy by Gabrielle Rumi. His son Donnino was responsible for the brilliant post-war scooters and motorcycles.
In the early years the company built textile machinery, and during WWII produced armaments and miniature submarines.

1961 RUMI motorcart unique jewel!!!
My cousin found in his father´s farm garage a rare specimen!! A 1961 Rumi three-wheel motorcycle with a cart (250 cc), that his father told him it was used in the Second World War to tranport goods, armament and people . It is in very good condition, except for the dirt and the passing of years without using it... The amazing feature is that it has a floor gearshift, 4th gear and reverse gear!!! it is worth seeing....
Anyone has an idea of where to look for information on this bike???
I am planning to sell it...any idea how much it could be worth??
Thanks very much!!!!
