The Pashley-Morgan range of bicycles brings together the design and manufacturing talents of two iconic family-owned British companies, Pashley Cycles and The Morgan Motor Company. Every Pashley-Morgan bicycle is expertly crafted using three core elements: steel, aluminium and wood. Each bicycle is unique: hand-built to the highest standard by passionate craftspeople, who perfect their skill over a lifetime to bring together heritage, innovation and cutting-edge technology. With a shared passion for craft, a sense of adventure and centuries of combined commitment to their product, Pashley and Morgan were two British brands waiting for the perfect opportunity to collaborate. The Pashley-Morgan range includes two new bicycles, both of which will be produced at Pashley’s Stratford-upon-Avon factory. The bicycles have a distinctive hand-crafted frame which features a new curved top tube design, mirroring the gentle sloping shoulder line of Morgan cars. It is bead fillet brazed using Reynolds 631 tubing and incorporates a frame mounted race plate, distinctive S-bend seat stays and unique track ends with etched stainless faces. Laminated wood veneer guards and knurled aluminium handlebar end caps (based on a dashboard control) are finishing touches inspired by Morgan’s unique and celebrated craftsmanship methods.

Every Pashley-Morgan bicycle offers:

  • Unrivalled heritage

  • British Design & Craftsmanship

  • Hand-made in England

  • Carefully considered materials, components and workmanship

  • Unique aesthetic, function and riding experience

  • A choice of two different models in Classic or Contemporary style

Pashley-Morgan 8 £1595

The Pashley-Morgan 8 is finished in light Pearl Grey and features subtle livery inspired by the more contemporary styled Morgan motorcars. Dropped handlebars, finished with hand-stitched black leather grips, offer a low-profile riding position for more dynamic riding. Black wood veneer short mudguards and chainguard are complimented by a Brooks Black Cambium C15 vulcanised rubber saddle with organic cotton surface. Its 8 speed Shimano Nexus internal hub provides an excellent wide-range of gears, and Panaracer Gravel King high-volume tyres features a tread pattern that excels both on and off-road.

Pashley-Morgan 3 £1495

The Pashley-Morgan 3 is a nod to the early Morgan motorcars with livery inspired by Morgan’s racing heritage. Finished in iconic British Racing Green, it features the original Sturmey-Archer 3 speed internal hub gearing and brakes for low maintenance and dependable performance. Raised handlebars, finished with hand-stitched honey leather grips, provide a comfortable and leisurely riding position. The traditional Brooks B17 leather saddle and front hub-dynamo streamlined headlamp add to its classic styling. The short mudguards and matching chainguard are manufactured from laminated maple wood veneer, inspired by Morgan’s unique and celebrated craftsmanship methods.
