    Hi Loveshak..

    Congratulations on the purchase mate.. I also have an old Autocycle made by Malvern Star.. I think somewhere around the 1954 vintage but haven`t as yet tried to find out much about it.. Make sure you take plenty of pictures during the build, i`ll be watching for more updates.. :thumb

    G`day Pete..

    There is a funny story involved with this thing.. When we had a look through this house when it was on the market, the owner had this Autocycle in the office.. During the negotiations stage, I put in an offer and jokingly said that he would have to leave the Autocycle behind with it.. He came back and agreed on the price and also the bike.. I was kind of excited and disapointed at the same time.. I was hoping he`d ask for a little bit more cause he had a good looking boat in the driveway as well.. :lol3

    I thought about putting a Z- box in the Malvern Star. Since that photo was taken, I have found a new 3 speed T- Bar for the top tube.
