1937 The Speedwell Challenge Shield Cycling Trophy

The Speedwell Challenge Shield

Wooden trophy shield with silver plated features.

Measures Approx. 60cm x 38cm

Engraved 'Speedwell Challenge Shield' on the ribbon across the top & 'Presented by Bennett & Wood' on the central winged boss under the image of the cyclist.

Engraved with the initials of various Australian Cycling Clubs and the date won on the domed circles, beginning with the 'T.A.C.C 27.3.37' and ending with the 'G.I.A.C.C. 22.2.70'.

Bennett & Wood Ltd manufactured Speedwell Bicycles in Australia from the late 19th century right up into the mid 1960s when the brand was bought by Malvern Star.

The Speedwell Challenge Shield was Australia's pre-eminent Cycling Club road race, like the Tour De France, from the late 1930s to 1970. 

This is a unique and remarkable piece of Australian Cycling and Australian sporting history.

Could be restored, as the wooden shield has marks and the silver plate is tarnished and probably worn from over polishing. However, it is still quite a remarkable piece in its current time worn condition.
