Established in 1963 in the then new, revolutionary Elizabeth Town Centre, Elizabeth Star Cycles was a small bike shop of about 70 square metres with a few bikes and tricycles on floor and a range of parts and accessories that would be considered very small by today's standards.
Business founders Bill and Pat Mills learned the bike trade in the then large Super Elliotts bike factory and took with them a wealth of experience to the new shop. The business soon outgrew the premises and we rented a workshop solely for repairs about 4km away in Elizabeth Grove before relocating our shop to a larger store, about 3 times the size. In the mid 70's with rents rising and business booming, we built our own warehouse/factory in Elizabeth West, where we still trade today.
Our first store opened in 1963 was a treaure trove of today's collectables. Check out the trikes and vintage bikes. Wish we still had them!
Welcome to our bike shop
In those early days we imported English Raleigh bikes which were like a touch of home for our large English migrant population. We also expanded our premises to include a bike production facility where we made our own frames, painted them and assembled quality bikes with Japanese components. Full scale production continued to the mid 90's where we made our range of Vortex bikes including our famous BMX bikes.
Eventually, like the rest of the Australian bike manufactures we found that it was no longer viable to produce bikes and began importing bikes from Taiwan and China. Today, approximately 400 square metres is devoted to sales and repairs. Although we no longer make our own range of bikes, we still have the facilities to repair frames, weld, build our own wheels and full workshop facilities with skills found in very few newer stores. Check out our repairs page to see the services we offer.
