Manufactured in Italy 1949-1969

The Rumi company was founded in the early years of the 20th century 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.

RUMI (bicycle)
Are you aware if Rumi ever made bicycles. Or if they had a branch in France that made bicycles. I have a RUMI 60 Special bicycle that came to California by way of a soldier returning home from Vietnam. The bicycle has a metal plate attached to one of its tubes with an address of a business in Vietnam, but is clearly French made. Italy and France are next to each other, so I do see a possibility that the two are related.

Cant remember the year it still has original plate so we could tell from that.

I am open to offers, she is looking for a good home, obviously best price takes her, she has been looked after for 14 years, by myself covered in WD40 every month also engine turned over regularly, i have never driven her in all that time, runner boards rusty as usual, seat needs recovering, handle bars have been crudly modified, hand levers etc will need re-chroming, tyres still intact also spare,also has original paint, is Yellow and White, it is a bit fluffy if you know what i mean after all these years, this will run if i add fuel.

1961 RUMI motorcart unique jewel!!!
Rumi 1961
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!!!!
