Subject: [CR]Malvern Star 2 Star ID

On Friday I was shown a Malvern Star 2 Star frame.It has virtually no original paint left on it but has a couple of interesting (to me anyway) features.It has a Cyclo derailleur bracket on the chain stay and a set of unusual rear dropouts.I am sure I have seen a picture of these or something similar before but cannot find it.They are horizontal road drops with a separate vertical slot closer to the stay.They also have a horn that comes down from the beginning of the drop and would perhaps make inserting a wheel in the frame easier.The serial number of the frame is #121228 if any one out there has a register of Malvern Stars and can tell me anything about this frame.It does not belong to me and is not for sale but I am interested in its origins and despite being an Australian have never seen a Malvern Star with Cyclo attachments.Anyone care to comment, Geoff Duke in wet Melbourne Australia,The home of Malvern Star
