Likely stolen Malvern Star ladies bike seen on ebay

Postby Jangari » Mon Jul 18, 2011 2:06 pm

Did anyone have a Malvern Star step-through stolen? Someone on Ebay is selling such a bike that, going by the photos, has clearly been dismantled and spraypainted, the frame red and everything else white. Terrible job. I was going to 'ask a question' of the seller and tell them how shoddy it looked, but thought this might be a more useful outlet to vent.

If it wasn't stolen, then someone is under the misguided assumption that a bike of this era will sell for more if it is superficially good-looking.

Because it probably will. Look at the prices fetched by similar bikes.

What makes you think that this one is stolen? If it's the paint job, then there are a million other stolen bikes on there as well...

I have one of these sitting in my garage. I'm curious to see how much this sells for, might be sitting on a gold mine :roll:

At least I used to have one in the garage, better check it wasn't stolen :wink:

I had a red Avon curved bar "step through" stolen in December.. Just wondering if it was definitely a Malvern star step through ?
The shoddy spray paint looks as though it was done by someone with enough life motivation and intelligence to steal a bike.
