fatherjon said:this might be the coolest project on here right now. i cant wait to see this done. Classic board track racers are awesome but this motor is SOO italian it needs a sweet old italian bike to be fitted to. im sure you have seen this already but a clean version of this would be awesome.
Bozz said:What an awesome project!
Very, VERY cool...

hillsy said:You might be better off getting a newer beach cruiser type frame. You can pick them up for next to nothing (they even sell them at Big W) and they will be just as easy to adapt than an older Malvern Star.
And finding a Malvern Star is one thing........paying stupid money for a junk pile one is another
Cafe Redneck said:congrats on the frame. Looking forward to seeing this build!!!
Hoosier Daddy said:Hell yea it's a good start!
jeff4uk said:Really nice to see these old bikes come back to life, well done pete, (hoping my next project will be a 1938 riged/ girder forked brit bike with hand change gears !!!)
