Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
I think there's tradies coming in on Saturday.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

On a sale of 1 to 10 I would give it 9.8 ... there was 12 drops of rain before the sun came out.
Personally I sold a mountain of stuff and bought a new mountain of stuff including an unmolested 1939 Malvern Star 3 star, a couple of pre WW11 (my collecting niche) race frames, a Brooks 'hairpin' saddle in excellent condition for my turn of the century roadster and a mitt full of smaller goodies.
I think my day was representative of the others who were there: Brilliant.
Next time can you just say it was a shocker and not at all worth it. Then those of use who missed out wont feel like we missed out
I was very interested to see that MS bike and compare to my own frame on the day ( identical !! ) seeing the original parts filled in some
blanks for me.
Bought a couple of parts which was good, this swap meet can only get better.
Thanks for the handlebars you sold me! Will go well with my old Austral frame (I hope)
That 3 Star Malvern Star was indeed a great buy. Lots of potential with that beauty.
The next Vintage Cycle Club Bicycle Swap Meet will be on Saturday 12 APRIL 2014 9am – 12 noon
BRING, BUY, SWAP, SELL precious bicycle stuff.
All eras welcome, esp classic and vintage.
Rear of Abbotsford Cycles, 27 Swan St, Richmond (under the station).
There is NO room in the shed for the next bike! New shed rqd.
