my dragster collection to restore

Postby huggiebear » Wed May 16, 2012 9:27 pm

thought id jumble is all into one thread to make life easier. started a little collection of bikes. most were bought in group sales which is how i ended up with so many.

a quick run through
repco 24" cruiser 70-75 model - very little known about it
Image
remake long chopper thing - ugly but fun to ride
Image
malvern star family star
Image
unknown make dragster - damaged ad welded at some point in its life so this one is getting modified to accept 1.5m long forks, tho it looks to be an oddball as it can fit a 24-26" front wheel. not 100% tho
Image
a raleigh small wheel III - in the process of restoring this but hard to find parts
Image
unknown brand 16" girls gragster - no codes or brands on it what so ever
Image
3 frames - foldable in order from back to front - balmoral bikes frame from south side of brisbane. - unknown pink frame only markings are brevett - and a raleigh twenty
Image
unknown brand girls/boys dragster 16" with conversion bar
Image
speedwell barracuda girls frame (no forks)
Image
malvern star dargstar (no forks)
Image
unknown brand (possibly repco) boys dragster
Image
and a shot of the 3 kids bikes i took tonight. the pink one will be restored and put on display, the unisex with conversion bar will be restored for my son to ride and the yellow one will most likely end up being sold but still undecided. once you get hooked its hard to let them go
Image


there are a few things id like to know about.
1. on the front fork of the pink foldable bike there is a bracket if anyone can tell me what its for?
Image

2. the back of the malvern star dragstar there is a bracket with 2 holes. again if anyone knows what its for?

and of course if you know any information that might help on the unknown bike frames id love to know. cheers.
Rick.

i finally started to work on these bikes, first up for my son as i promised when he broke his arm 6 weeks ago that when the cast comes off we will have his bike finished

choice is metallic green and chrome. about to order $100 worth of new parts so everything is new on the bike. but decided to paint some old rims up instead of wasting money on new chrome ones

im not happy with how the frame looks so im going to take it to my mate to get sand blasted - too much work with just sand paper

and just bought a new little ripper.. 16" chopper. only ever seen 1 other one (in a pic) so had to snap it up. full reco on this as soon as this bike is done
