Malvern Star SuperMax, Maxi and Speedwell Sting

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.

Pad Sets

I have prepared artwork for a number of different Malvern Star and Speedwell pad sets and have worked with Stephen from Esem Design to get them made previously. If you are interested in getting pads made or buying the pads below, contact Stephen Dobson via email and discuss your requirements directly with him. Please mention that you got the link from my site!

Prices are quoted in pounds sterling and may change without notice. Due to the considerably cost of freight, it makes sense to order multiple pad sets together to combine freight. Again, talk to Steve about combined postage put a basic parcel to Australia is £12.
