Does any one on the list know anything about Malvern Star? I have a 22" frame, serial number 9A840 stamped on RH top of BB shell. The BB shell is marked Made in England GR23, excatly the same as the sandcast bottom braccket featured in Rivendell Reader #21. The BB shell spigots have been shaped , but differently to the shell in RR. Front dropouts have a single eyelet. Rear tips are rearward facing, about 1/8" thick, with undrilled eyelets. The headset races fit into cups which are part of the headlugs

Can anyone tell me what I have, how old etc. I bought this frame from a second hand shop in New Zealand in 1978. My brother and I built it into a ten-speed for him to make his racing debut. For the last 20 years it has sat at my parents place- we're one of those families that don't chuck anything away.

Best Wishes,
DB
