My GF had been nurturing a desire to have a mixte for a while and after looking at the various “off the shelf” options (Linus, Cell, Allegro and so on) decided to find an older frame and start from scratch. Found a Malvern Star in Dandenong for $40 (totally unrideable) in a good size for her. Huw and Luke down at Commuter Cycles have been putting it together and I’ve been taking photos of the build as it moves along.

I’ll add more details shortly.
She’s hoping to pick it up before the Show & Shine
