Malvern Star Mash Up
Back in the eighth decade of last century, when I was somewhere between four foot and five foot tall, the ultimate bike was a Malvern Star; it was practically a synonym for bike . At the time I only had eyes for a 26 inch wheel red girl’s Malvern Star, but looks like they were also busy making small wheeled bikes.
Once he twigged to my obsession Russ was proud to point out the original bell
(also very shiny)…
And I couldn’t resist documenting his impeccable cycling styling: setting off the yellow of the bike with his red boots…
But wait, there’s more.
I recommend you have a look at the Malvern Star tab, there is a beeeeyoodiful example, blue with white trim, complete with white trim on the tyres. But before you do, I am about to stray outside the little bike blog brief to include a Malvern Star dragstar in mint condition, snapped for me by my vigilant little-bike scout in on a recent trip to Bris Vegas. Not quite in the hood, not found on the street, not quite in the style of bike I am blogging, but totally irresistable.
