New to retro.

Postby middleout » Sun Nov 14, 2010 11:00 pm

Hey guys,

I'm only in my early days of playing with my few bikes, but i picked this little step through up the other day and have not been able to find any information on it at ALL.
I was hoping someone could possible give me some advice, or opinions on this bike..

It's a MS, but it also has a decal on it thats says 'Family Star'
Cheers.

About 7 or so bikes like that died to make this!

We call them seat pole bikes. The things are all seat pole?

The Family star runs round tube. This chopper has the ovalized style tubes. Top tube, down tube and seat pole, all cut and shut. Thanks too your nearest hard rubbish pile.

The Malvern Star has some street cred. Good bike for just starting out. its addictive, be warned!

Can't say its mine Shaun, Billy Boneshaker the human bike magnet built that one. It is one of many seriously tough bikes he has knocked up from hard rubbish. Note the T bar shifter in the top tube!

Sorry to hijack the Family star thread. I have watched a matching pair of Family Stars in red and blue. Out the front of the local over priced second hand dealers. I didn't ask what they wanted. But they went in a few days? Somebody wanted them? bikes seem to sit there for months.

Thanks Turk. I did miss the ol' SA shifter :oops: . You and Billy ever think of going into business? I loves the easy rider look.
