seller has had a few bikes for sale and in same condition, i like to see their feedback so as to get an idea of what they usually sell, and seller has sold some nice bikes and has received good seller feedback.
i would love to purchase this bike. but im married now :cry:
steel is the real deal.

Somebody did. Took a couple of hours longer than I would have thought.

Looked like very interesting lugs, appears to have a cyclo shifter (or similar) and paint in nice condition. Hopefully somebody here purchased and can post up some detailed photos. If it had been near me, I would have bought it.

Well actually it is back up and with another $70 on the b.i.n. price. Looks like the seller pulled it.
I'm still not allowed.

Maybe a bargain... but for what?

A "Malvern Star", with a photo of a Repco, claiming to be 26"?

I'm nearly as confused as the seller!

^^ Wrong place mate. We're the retro forum, where no one knows what that funky doodad crank is. :roll: Think you got mixed up with the Spotted a Special thread.

Anyway, anyone here manage to snag this SoftRide? I was bidding, but lost out.
