Pashley Cycles can look back on a long history. Since 1926, high-quality bicycles have been manufactured by hand, making it the oldest bicycle manufacturer in Great Britain. Two exclusive models were presented last year in cooperation with sports car manufacturer Morgan. Now the Pashley-Morgan 110 is a new dedicated model in a limited and numbered edition of 110 copies to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the rustic sports cars. These are produced at the Pashley factory in Stratford-upon-Avon and sold worldwide via Morgan dealers.
The exceptionally shaped frame with its unique top tube, unusual S-bend seat stays and special dropouts with etched stainless faces is made from Reynolds 725 tubes. For the paintwork the two companies chose a noble Satin Champagne with various graphics and subtle livery. The top tube for example bears the ‘Morgan 110 Years’ logo, while independent badges are placed under the handlebars and under the saddle. On the handlebar tube there is a specially designed cover in the style of an old car speedometer, which also indicates the numbering of each individual bike. The black leather handles on the handlebars are hand-stitched, the switchgear for the brakes and the ten-speed gearbox are in black anodized aluminium and the rider sits on a vulcanised Brooks Black Cambium C15 rubber saddle. First deliveries of the limited edition bike are expected for November at a price of £ 1,750.
