Morgan’s Latest Creations Lose One More Wheel (And Engine)

You can get a Morgan with four wheels and you can get a Morgan with three. Now you can get one with just two – and no engine more than your own legs.

The oldest of British automakers has teamed up with the oldest of British bicycle manufacturers to launch a new range of bicycles. And true to Morgan’s ethos, they’re all hand-built – and rather expensive, too.

Unveiled this weekend, the classically styled bicycles will both be hand-built at Pashley’s factory in Stratford-upon-Avon – the quaint birthplace of William Shakespeare and home of the theater (and theater company) that bear his name.

The Pashley-Morgan 3 comes in British Racing Green with honey-leather grips, aluminum trim, a Brooks B17 saddle with walnut-veneer mud-guards and chain-guard crafted at Morgan’s Malvern Link factory, an hour’s drive west from Stratford. It features a SturmeyArcher three-speed hub and dynamo front hub,, with a domed headlight – all yours for £1,495, or about $1,900 at current exchange rates.

Step up to the Pashley-Morgan 8 and you’ll be looking at $1,595 (a little over $2k). It comes in light pearl grey with black leather grips, black-ash leather mud- and chain-guards. And it features an eight-speed Shimano Nexus gearset with a Brooks C15 vulcanized-rubber saddle with organic cotton upholstery.

“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,” said the bicycle manufacturer’s managing director Adrian Williams. “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.”

    “mud guards”… have they ever riden a bike in the mud? Those 10″/25cm bread boards won’t stop any mud from the tires/tyres, so the next visible signs of an Morgan owner at the golf club will be a nice stripe of dirt going up the back of their polo sweather.
