MALVERN STAR DRAGSTER BIKE (eBay item 320617227946 end time 24-Nov-10 19:28:54 AEDST) : Sport

If I’m not mistaken this bike has a bent set of forks installed backwards.

One way to attempt a deception I guess.

You are mistaken I’m afraid.


My malvern Star Dragster I had original in the late 70’s sure as hell didn’t have forks like that.

looked like this one

I have restored an couple of dragsters and i can tell you that fork is most definitely bent

If that’s the case, I have seen several bikes, admittedly not dragsters, with forks bent in exactly the same way. Initially I thought they were bent as well the first time I saw them, but on closer inspection it’s obvious it’s deliberate.
