The Morgan Motor Company has collaborated on two concept bicycles with a fellow British company, Pashley Cycles. Founded in 1926, Pashley Cycles is the longest established British cycle manufacturer, famed the world over for its range of traditionally built and impeccably styled cycles.
With centuries of combined heritage, craftsmanship and passion for their respective products, Pashley and Morgan are two like-minded British brands just waiting for the perfect opportunity to collaborate.
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 handcrafted 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 8 is finished in light pearl grey and features subtle livery inspired by Morgan’s racing heritage. Hand-stitched black leather grips are complemented by Morgan aluminium end caps (based on a dashboard control). Matching mudguard and chainguard are handcrafted 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 UK at £1595 (S$2797).
