|Pray it doesn't rain!|
The Gobbetto excelled on the urban circuits and endurance races where fast acceleration and handling were paramount. However on high speed events, when pitted against other four-stroke racers, it lost out to other four-stroke powered race bikes of the time. In 1955 Rumi ceased production of the Gobbetto after only ever producing around 50 examples.
Then sadly in the early 60's Rumi went into liquidation and closed their factory doors. The bike seen here belongs to a German collector by the name of Bruno Finardi (see last image), I'd be smiling too if I had a pristine example of one of the world's rarest motorcycles parked in my garage!
