seen at Lorne


                                     

.....this lovely old Malvern Star 'Ladies' bike used as a pretty cool marketing display. Malvern Star was an iconic Australian brand which ceased to function in the early 80s but has since made something of a come back with a range of hi tech 22 speed carbon fibre racers and some stylish retro city bikes.In a world of Giants,Cannondales and Meridas,I'm glad to see these smaller brands back on the roads (and in the windows).

Sigh, my first 'grown-up' drop-bar cycle as a teenager was a Malvern Star! Loved that bike.

It seems that everything old is new again, and that's not a bad thing,in my book.
