Two that complement each other: Morgan, the longest-established British automaker, and Pashley, founded in 1926, the longest-established British bicycle manufacturer, launch a bicycle edition. The series will begin with two bicycles, Pashley-Morgan “3” and Pashley-Morgan “8”.
With centuries of combined heritage, craftsmanship and passion for their product, Pashley and Morgan are two “like minded” brands just waiting for the perfect opportunity to collaborate. Launching in this weekend at Morgan’s much anticipated Thrill on the Hill, the Pashley-Morgan range will include two new bikes, both of which will be produced at Pashley’s Stratford-upon-Avon factory. The bicycles have a stylish hand-crafted frame which features a new curved top tube design. It is fillet brazed using Reynolds 631 tubing and incorporates a custom formed top tube, frame mounted race plate, distinctive S-bend seat stays and unique track ends with etched stainless faces.
The Pashley-Morgan 3 is finished in British Racing Green and livery inspired by Morgan’s racing heritage. It also features hand stitched honey leather grips and Morgan aluminium end caps, a Brooks B17 saddle with walnut laminated wood veneer short mudguards and matching chainguard. The Pashley-Morgan 3 features a Sturmey Archer 3 Speed internal geared hub and a Sturmey Archer dynamo front hub paired to a classic domed style headlamp and will retail in the U.K. at £1495 (RRP).
The Pashley Morgan 8 is finished in light pearl grey and features subtle livery inspired by Morgan’s racing heritage. Hand stitched black leather grips are complimented by Morgan aluminium end caps (based on a dashboard control). Matching mudguard and chainguard are hand crafted in-house at Morgan’s Malvern Link factory using black ash. The Pashley-Morgan 8 features an 8 speed Shimano Nexus internal geared hub and a Shimano Nexus dynamo front hub paired to a classic domed style headlamp, as well as a Brooks Black Cambium C15 vulcanised rubber saddle with organic cotton surface. It will retail in the U.K. at £1595 (RRP)
