Work starts on the Austral Star

Period Austral Star ad from a 1950 Speedewell Cycle Works catalogue.

Frame just back from the paint strippers, frame ( less forks of course)weight is 1.91 kg not bad.

Man I love those little maps of Australia in the head lugs, really looking forward to getting into this build.

  1. Greetings,

    I run a site dedicated to the Austral cycle brand so if you'd like to check it out for some more information it's found at...

    If you still have your bike I'd love to add it to my Austral owners section and record its serial number.
