About Malvern Star
Malvern Star is an Australian home-grown icon. The largest and most famous bicycle manufacturing company in Australia was created by cyclist Tom Finnigan in 1903 with the 240 gold sovereign winnings he earned by winning the 1898 Austral Wheel Race, the oldest track bicycle race in the world. He opened a small shop on Glenferrie Road in the Melbourne Suburb of Malvern. The six pointed star logo coming from a tattoo on his forearm. In 1928 they sent the first ever Australian team to race the Tour de France headed by Sir Hubert Opperman. “Oppy” later went on to win the famous Paris-Brest-Paris race in 1931 setting a new record time for the event.
