I don't know very much about bikes but recently got given this old Malvern 2 Star. I originally thought I would restore it to ride but the frame is too heavy for me. I had a friend say it could be worth a bit so have decided to restore it to sell but also to learn about bikes along the way.
I'm not expecting to make a fortune but don't want the restoration to cost more than the bike is worth so am looking for some advice.
I am wondering how much work this would need, how to go about it (where to start?!), and also an idea on how valuable it actually is.
The seat is not an original part I don't think (made in Taiwan). It still has its rearview mirror (!), light, and little bike repair kit attached with the tools inside.
Any help/advice would be very much appreciated! I would take it to a bike shop but because I don't have much knowledge on this Im worried I'll be ripped off?
