With a history that dates back to 1902, Malvern Star is the oldest and most iconic Australian bicycle brand on the market. You’ll find the full range of Malvern Star bikes and cycling products on BikeExchange.
Malvern Star was established in 1903 by Australian cycling great Tom Finnigan in a little shop on Glenferrie Road, in Malvern. Finnigan had decided to start manufacturing his own brand of racing and touring bikes following his win in the 1898 Astral Wheel Race and ever since, bikes have been produced under the Malvern Star name.
In 1920, Bruce Small bought Malvern Star from Finnigan. A year later, a young Hubert Opperman won an event sponsored by Small. Malvern Star sponsoring Oppy’, as he came to be known, throughout his career was the beginning of a long partnership, with the now iconic “Oppy” line of bikes still available today.
Manufactured from durable Cro-mo steel and lightweight aluminium, the brand’s range of bikes represent great value.
As a nod to where it all began, Malvern Star continue to make a line of touring options with the heritage line of Oppy models a popular option for those wanting modern performance and reliability with a retro design.
