Re: 1978 Malvern Star SuperMaX

yerrp got a couple myself too and 2 Super Maxi"s as well 2 with the 5 Holey gussett and 2 without.... 1 is the chocolate brown mentioned on here and the Maxi in brown to match..2 seperate sellers on the evil bay nearly  12 months apart..go figuire eyy..a pidgeon pair..building slowly...coz the MX-2 headsets get hammerred at auction..definately OZ BMX royalty..keep the faith guys..I will.......Also did i mention I have an 82 Hotfoot with the same  5 holey gussett..now that blew me away..thought it was a wrongly ID"d Supermax when i saw the gussett...but its a Hotfoot..nice to have a "none Max" with the gussett makes a nice collection crossover....cheers guys Kev.

Here's an updated photo. One thing to remember is the framepad only had SuperMax written on it once, placed at the top(like a bar pad)
