While researching information for my ’81 SuperMax, ’83 Speedwell Sting and up-coming ’79 5-Hole gusset builds, I got so sick of finding information then losing it again that I started copying images of bikes, parts and advertising material into a single place. To assist others, I have reproduced this information over the following pages.. If you have any Malvern Star or Speedwell information or photos, please forward them to me and I will add them to the site. I am especially interested in brochures and advertisements as these are most valuable when restoring bikes back to their original glory.
Unlike some of the more prestigious brands who had loyal followers and a racing pedigree worth preserving, these bikes were literarily relegated to the back shed only to be dusted off twenty years later by those who used to own one and wishing to rebuild their childhood bikes. Unlike the Repco bikes, Malvern Star did not stamp their bikes with a build date making the dating process quite hard and inaccurate.
The timeline below has been pieced together from scant information. This is not a definitive work and I would love people to challenge the existing dates and content or submit additional information to complete it. Catalogues and advertising material from the time can provide irrefutable proof of release dates, model variations and marketing approaches. It was started by cyclist Tom Finnigan who established the shop with the prize he earned gold sovereigns by winning the Austral Wheel Race.
Finnigan specialised in touring and racing bikes, which he called Malvern Stars.

I took my fathers Double XX into a bike store to get some advice on restoration and they said it wasn’t worth restoring.
I do want to give it a shot because my Dad is not well but this is new to me and don’t know where to begin to source appropriate parts or second hand alternatives. Major learning curve.. Any advice heaps appreciated! The bearings, brake pads and front axle are available anywhere and cost next to nothing for brand new stuff, again you can just strip parts off a thrown out bike if you want.
And for the brake levers, they may mean the levers as a whole, or just the rubber hoods. I have both types on bikes I ride regularly and while the Tektros are more comfortable for me, either will do the job. I restored my dad’s old bike last year and it cost that much just to get a couple of parts rechromed, but it was worth every cent when he saw the finished product.

Ton Finnegan retired in but, under the ownership of Bruce Small and with the publicity gained from its association with the renowned racing cyclist Sir Hubert Opperman, Malvern Star grew greatly in size, from producing five bicycles a week in the s to having branches and 1, agencies throughout Australia by Through a series of mergers and take-overs it became part of General Accessories, Australia’s largest cycle maker in A number of autocycles was built during the war years and, as in Britain, these were intended for essential workers such as Civil Defence wardens.
The design of the frame changes during the war years, almost certainly being home-produced as supplies from the UK would have been dificult during the was years. Bracing bars were added to the rigid fork version and a longer petrol tank was fitted. The use of the longer tank again mirrors UK production. Although the Auto-Byke was nearly all Australian made by now, it still used British-made Villiers engines. This 2F-engined model looks similar to the British-built Norman or Rambler autocycle, but small differences indicate that it was of Australian production.
Autocycles were declining in popularity and production ceased in
