I have just acquired a 4 Star BSA Malvern Star. It has theserial number 296S on right rear fork. Was a track bike I'm pretty sure. (Grandfathers) and appears to me to be a lightweight version. BSA on pedals. Navy Blue with ornate pinstriping. Brooks B17 Sprinter seat and is in great condition. Has my grandfathers name hand painted on the crossbar which took very close inspection to notice that it wasn't painted at the same time as other decals. Unfortunately 6-8 wheels were stolen from in the very recent future (Victoria). Can't find anything yet about 4 stars and would like to know its age. Thank you.

Hullo Warren. My 3 Star has a cracked down tube, about an inch down from the lug at the bottom of the steering head. Are you able to braze in a new tube, please ? And then repair / align the frame & forks as ness., and repaint ? I would like a full restoration if you would, thanks. Also, can you supply new 27 x 1 1/4 " alloy rims, 36 hole, maybe 40 hole ? Cheers. Paul.
