|I also posted these pictures over at http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/ - number 606. I am really enjoying riding fixed and have plans to convert some more of my bikes! About the only future plan I have for this one is to replace the old rusty spokes.

|an old art deco chrome chainring/crankset would look really cool on that bike.|

I am not 100% certain as it has no identifying marks at all. Best as I can figure it is a Malvern Star Skidstar. They were made here in Australia in the '60s and into the '70s. It could also be a Speedwell GTS which is apparently the same frame but sold under a different name. Here is a picture of one (the image name suggests the Speedwell version) in near original condition, well original equipment anyway:
Note: this image was stolen from the Canberra Bicycle Museum. I would provide a link to them, but their domain name now points to a domain reseller...
You may notice that I have removed the chain guard braze-ons from my frame and that my frame has a rear light mount on the drive side seat stay that this frame does not. I was tempted to remove the light mount from mine as well but it is brazed around half the tube and I decided there was too much risk of me causing serious damage to the frame...

|That has got to be the coolest looking fixie yet. You should post this on the general board and treat everyone to this.|| |
