Similar to Morgan, Pashley is the longest established and surviving push-bike manufacturer in the UK — so it’s a match made in heaven. Both design teams worked together to create this handsome pair of bikes that, just like the Morgan cars, are hand-crafted.
If you speak cycling enthusiast, each features Reynolds 631 tubing and has a custom formed top tube, frame mounted race plate, S-bend seat stays and bespoke track ends with etched stainless faces. For those who aren’t fluent in bike, it results in a pretty frame and a distinctive bike. You can choose from two models, the Pashley-Morgan 8 or Pashley-Morgan 3.
The 8 harks back to Morgan’s racing heritage with a subtle motorsport-inspired livery applied to its pearl grey paint. Hand-stitched leather grips are contrasted by aluminium end caps for a premium look. A nice touch is that the mudguard and chainguard are crafted from wood.
If you opt for the Pashley-Morgan 3, our favourite of the pair, you get a bike finished in traditional British Racing Green and detailed with honey leather grips. A walnut laminated wood veneer short mudguard and matching chainguard makes this a sophisticated design. This model also features a dynamo that powers a front headlamp as you cycle along.
Sadly, these beautiful bikes don’t come cheap. The Pashley-Morgan 8 will set you back £1,595 and the Pashley-Morgan 3 £1,495. Each can be ordered from Morgan’s website, a dealership and selected Pashley Cycles outlets.
