Do you have to paint a Rumi Junior Gentleman red, most others are, my one came as trolling chassis in a lightish Rumi blue as hugo i believe mentioned in an earlier post. I am thinking of painting mine in metallic Subaru blue, with gold panels on tank. Any comments welcome.

Hi Arthur, for what its worth, as far as I know the Gentleman came in only two painted versions viz. most in the UK were Gold with a White base on the tank and rarely, Red with a White base on the tank. John Dixon painted his racer in the early sixties green with black panels on the tank (ghastly). However, if you prefer a non-standard colour scheme, that's OK as well!

Paint it to please yourself Arthur,any future owner could always change it.
My current Formi project will not be painted an authentic Rumi colour,it's fun choosing.
Good luck with it.
Michael.

Arthur, the blue references I mentioned were for the Formichino.

Hi,

I do not remember to mention anything about Rumi racing blue color. I have talk for sure about the Scoiattolo blue (RUM A6).

As mentioned by Michael, paint it as you fancy, that is something that always can be change. My standard Formichino is all wrong (body color, wheel chromed, etc) and I just LOVE that scooter.

Looking forward to see the progress of your projects.

Yes, but when cleaned the rolling chassis i bought was in that blue, and when rubbed back showed no other colour underneath other than an under coat. Have now had frame blasted ready for complete repaint. Have made a jig for frame and started to make new frame for my 4 cylinder project. Have photos of different things to post but am waiting for my son to find time to do it for me, as i don't know how.

Hi Arthur, maybe somebody along these years sandblasted the frame and repainted?, or maybe you got a rare colors scheme Junior?

Have a look at the next link these two colors:

RUM A4
RUM A6

Greets,
Hugo

Arthur, don't forget about the beautiful and unique off-white and red versions. These colors are definitely not the stereotypical colors used on Italian racing bikes, but it's how some left the factory.
