The Morgan Motor Company are excited to collaborate on two concept bicycles with a fellow British company, Pashley Cycles. Founded in 1926, Pashley Cycles are the longest established British cycle manufacturer. Also, famed the world over for their range of traditionally built and impeccably styled cycles.

Centuries of combined heritage, craftsmanship and passion for their product behind them. Pashley and Morgan are two “like minded” brands just waiting for the perfect opportunity to collaborate. Greatly received when launched at Morgan’s Thrill on the Hill last month. Notably, the Pashley-Morgan range includes two new bikes. Both produced at Pashley’s Stratford-upon-Avon factory. The bicycles have a stylish hand-crafted frame which features a new curved top tube design. Likewise, fillet brazed using Reynolds 631 tubing. Also incorporating a custom formed top tube, frame mounted race plate, distinctive S-bend seat stays. Plus, unique track ends with etched stainless faces.

Recently, at Goodwood Revival and Eurobike events respectively. Following significant demand, both Morgan and Pashley are excited to announce that the bikes are now officially on sale. Finally, interested customers are invited to visit the Morgan factory shop, make contact with their nearest Morgan Dealer or Pashley agent.

Adrian Williams, Managing Director, Pashley Cycles:

“Often referring Pashley to “the Morgan of the bicycle world”. So, I am delighted with the close collaboration between our two companies. Very much manifested in the new Pashley-Morgan range of bicycles. Pashley and Morgan share many similarities. Namely, including unrivalled heritage, design innovation and British craftsmanship. Evidenced in the beautiful Pashley bicycles produced. These bicycles will appeal to Morgan car owners and discerning cyclists alike.”

Jonathan Wells, Head of Design, Morgan Motor Company:

“The craftsmen and women at Morgan work passionately to duly reflect the brand qualities within every product we release. When exploring new product avenues and markets, the greatest way to accomplish this, with brand integrity maintained, is to collaborate with likeminded craftspeople across industries. It made absolute sense to embark on a collaborative project with Pashley.

Our approach to developing any new product starts with a blank sheet of paper. Working alongside, and being influenced by, Pashley’s designers and craftsmen has been a fascinating experience. All the while, evolving the designs. This unified approach, I believe, is apparent in the final offerings. I am particularly fond of the swept top tube. This feature is not only a first for Pashley, its intention is to mirror the gentle sloping shoulder line of current and future Morgan cars.”
