2 star

Postby scott j » Thu Jan 19, 2017 11:47 am

Hi new here, looking for some info on my old mans 2 star malvern star I don't have a camera I can post with, so hopefully I can explain it.
It has numbers stamped on the steel near the seat post like this
8m
19525
It has pedal backward brakes, 2 stars on the head-stock?, a star on each side of the fork tubes, a pump holder, no numbers on the frame at the back axle and a rear frame piece is bolted in that goes from the rear axle to the back of the seat.

I have just finished his cyclops push scooter and decided to look into his old pushy. It's all there but pretty rough. Are any parts available?

All help great fully appreciated
scott

by reading this thread
Pre 1930 Malvern Star serial numbers
you would have determined it was a 1948 Melbourne built frame
(I accept that the frames identified extend well beyond the Pre1930 nominated period, and the dates require some hard work... perhaps there are enough frames identified to provide a summary thread)

by looking at this thread
Researching your retro ride and cycling history
and then at Trove you would have found this advertisement
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article141337886 for the three star with optional gears.

and this two star
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/26461059

what parts do you need? And we like photos, so best to organise a loan of a camera.
let me help you prepare your ebay advert, ask me how

I know it,s an old post but I got held up restoring a cyclops scooter but now time for the star.

I have decided to "rat" the bike with a few custom bits will post as I go through it.

First up I tore the beast down and have wire brushed off the 30 coats of paint this will be the finished look, bare steel.

During the tear down procedure I noticed that the rollers in the crank are not a full coverage of the race so how many should be on the 2 sides, and the same question for the steering head are the top and the bottom identical in size or slightly different and how many ? I have stored them in different containers they look to be the same size.
Thanks
scott
