I'm sad to say these images have been languishing in my inbox for a couple of weeks now. James from Australia submitted pictures of his 1956 Speedwell (Australian brand manufactured by Malvern Star)for your appreciation. I personally am not familiar with the Speedwell badge, but it looks like a bike worthy of the Old Three-Speed Gallery.
James also has an excellent write up of the bike, along with more photos, at Perth Vintage Cycles. A great looking bike with a great story. Thanks James!
