S262, is not the serial number, sounds like the casting number of the BB shell. Check the left side of the seat lug, the right hand rear fork end, or on the fork steerer, (you will have to take the forks out to view that one.)

Are the stars in the head within the head lugs, in an open head? Swap over to Facebook, and post some photos!

Hello,
Hoping someone can help date an old Malvern Star. The only number I can find on it is 905 just under the seat post and it is stamped Brampton England under the crank case. I can’t seem to post a photo.
Thanks!

Hi Everyone, newbie here. i recently picked up 2 malvern stars from a clearing sale (in Eromanga, QLD - furthest town from the sea in Australia of all places :shock: ) one is a mens looking one with turny-upped handle bars (serial number 23725). the other is a womens looking one that still has the 'roadstar' decal on it in bad shape though. only number i can find looks like a sticker rather than an embossed on the lower BB which is 'B 75345' so guessing its not as old as the other? just after anyone to give me a rough idea of years/models and if they are worth having a go at restoring. paid $5 for the both so im hardly financially invested in them...

thanks, Damo

Gday, I have a 4 star fixed gear track bike, serial numbers 296 on rr fork. Looks like an X stamped on crankcase. My grandfathers name is hand painted on frame. Have no wheels as all 8 of them were stolen from dads shed a few years ago. It seems extremely lightweight...molybdenum???
In very bad shape unfortunately. I would really appreciate any info you may have. Thanks. Matt.
I have tried several times yer again to add photos but can’t figure it out. Sorry.

Hi there,

I have a Malvern Star 5 star track frame which I am keen to find an estimated year of manufacture.
The numbers on the rear fork are 7667 (running down the lug), with 54 running across the lug, perpendicular to the first 7.

I am guessing 1954.

I would appreciate any information on the frame, as this frame holds sentimental value to me.

Thanks in advance...
