Morgan has teamed up with bicycle maker Pashley to deliver the Pashley-Morgan “3” and the Pashley-Morgan “8” bicycles. Costs from £1,495.
Morgan are about as traditional a car maker as you’ll find anywhere in the world, and perhaps the only car maker offering a choice of four-wheel and three-wheel cars. Now, it’s offering a two-wheel Morgan too – but it doesn’t have an engine.
Morgan has teamed up with traditional British bicycle manufacturer Pashley Bicycles to create a pair of Pashley-Morgan bicycles for those times when you really don’t need an engine. Surprisingly, they don’t come with a wicker basket on the front.
What the new Morgan bikes do have though is a hand-crafted frame with a curved top tube, frame mounted race plate, S-bend stays and unique track ends.
The two offerings are the Pashley-Morgan “3” and the Pashley-Morgan “8”, with the Morgan 3 getting a British Racing Green paint job, hand-stitched honey leather grips, Morgan aluminium end-caps, a Brooks B17 saddle, walnut veneer mudguards, Sturmey Archer three-speed gear hub and front dynamo hub. It costs £1,495.
The Morgan 8 gets a light pearl grey paint job with black leather grips, Morgan aluminium end caps, matching black ash mudguard and chain guard, 8-speed Shimano gears, Brooks Black rubber saddle with organic cotton cover and domed headlight with Shimano Nexus Dynamo hub. It costs £1,595.
Adrian Williams, Pashley’s MD, said:
People often refer to Pashley as “the Morgan of the bicycle world” and so I am delighted that there is now a close collaboration between our two companies, manifested in the new Pashley-Morgan range of bicycles. Pashley and Morgan share many similarities including our unrivalled heritage, design innovation and British craftsmanship and this is evidenced in the beautiful bicycles we have produced. These bicycles will appeal to Morgan car owners and discerning cyclists alike.
If you fancy a Morgan bike you can grab one direct from Morgan.
