Malvern Star

While researching information for my '81 SuperMax, '83 Speedwell Sting and up-coming '79 5-Hole gusset builds, I got so sick of finding information then losing it again that I started copying images of bikes, parts and advertising material into a single place. To assist others, I have reproduced this information over the following pages .. most of the information can be found on OzBMX and BMXMuseum and I am not pretending that this informtion will replace either of these valuable resources.

Please browse through all of the material I have collected:

If you have any Malvern Star or Speedwell information or photos, please forward them to me and I will add them to the site. I am especially interested in brochures and advertisements as these are most valuable when restoring bikes back to their original glory.


1990 Malvern Star Catalogue

This catalogue features a number of mountain, road and BMX bikes. Unlike most bike catalogues, the mountain bikes get pride of place at the front whereas most catalogues lead with the road bikes. The range includes an interesting frame called a Protech 500M with 'the latest elevated chainstay design'. I am not sure what this achieves as the design does not really provide any real clearance gains but apparently prevents mud clogging (!).

This catalogue features to Maxi 500C and Freestyle 500. The Freestyle 500 is a really nice looking bike in black / red and comes with a rotor, standers and 48 spoke rims.
