#01840 mens , rear facing dropouts, there is blue paint under the silver. Someone resprayed shimmed the handle bars on there & also put a nail in with seat pole.
Rear hub is immaculate, rims look like they were shiny when parked until the chain rusted itself together.

I have more photos I'll upload soon.

Hello,
I have an old Malvern Star 2 star Ladies bicycle. The serial number is 5M 16180 located on the top of the frame where the seat post slides into the frame. Any idea on how old this bike is?
Cheers

Not pre 30, Im guessing about 65ish. Bought it on ebay over the weekend to add to my growing stable of Malvern Stars of a similar vintage. I know its a base model cheaper frame. Most of the frame looks the quality of basic skidstars I have. Just the rear drop out is different.

What can members tell me about this frame? Presume it was a budget model track bike that brakes could be fitted to. Looks like its had brakes fitted in a previous life.

Cheers Geoff

Indeed that one is a Semi racer. they were called a Semi racer in fact. But it would have had mudgaurds and lights when new.

Hi, new to the forum and just found this old thread. Quite interested to know age of my 2star track bike frame numbered 4P 1586. The BB has stamped in it BB GR23 and "Made in England". The fork is not original and the groupset is a bit of a mismatch that I wouldn't rely on. That said, the quill stem is an old alloy Phillips (with open "rear end") I think Williams crank set. Much appreciated!

the numbering convention would indicate 1944 Perth build.
Whether it is a track frame or a road frame having rear facing dropouts would need photos.

Hi, I've got my great grandfather's bike that I thought was a Malvern Star. It's got the right 2 star forks, but no stars on the frame. The frame serial number is D6806 which is stamped on the down tube near where the seat post goes in.
Any help with this would be great. I think it's early 30s or late 20s.
The bottom bracket is a Bayliss Wiley and the coaster hub is a Favorit (not sure it was original).
This is my first post, so if photos are needed I'll work that out later.
Thanks in advance, Ryan
