Famed maker of the three-wheeler celebrates 110 years with just two

Morgan, the hand-built British car maker, is one of the oldest car makers in the world; and is unique in retaining Edwardian manufacturing techniques well into the 21st century.

Founded in 1910, the company still utilises wood in the body shell frames of their vehicles – and to mark their 110th anniversary, they’ve collaborated with another hand-built British specialist firm to release another hallmark of last-century transport; a bicycle.

Together with Pashley Cycles, Morgan designers have joined forces in creating a unique limited edition bicycle released as a tribute to the historic marques significant anniversary.

Dubbed, the Pashley-Morgan 110 Limited Edition – the anniversary release actually follows two previous Morgan-branded bicycles, named the Pashley-Morgan 3 and 8, introduced in 2018.

Pashley Cycles has been building bicycles since 1926 and remains England’s longest-running bicycle makers.

Just 110 examples of the Pashley-Morgan 110 will be handcrafted at Pashley’s factory, with a speedometer-styled headset cap engraved with each bike’s individual serialised number.

For the bike nerds out there: the Pashley-Morgan 110 boasts a frame comprised of Reynolds 725 tubing and incorporates a custom-formed top tube, distinctive S-bend seat stays and unique dropouts with etched stainless faces.

All Pashley-Morgan 110s are finished in a Satin Champagne coating with Morgan 110 graphics and a subtle livery inspired by Morgan’s heritage.

Hand-stitched black leather grips, Morgan switchgear-inspired aluminium endcaps, and a Brooks Cambium C15 vulcanised rubber saddle with organic cotton surface round out the finishing touches; with stainless steel hardware offering year-round riding durability.

Echoing the 110 theme, the bike features a 1x10 drivetrain; with a wide range cassette, hydraulic brakes and high-volume Panaracer Gravel King tubeless tyres.

The bike was recently debuted at Eurobike 2019 on September 4, with orders opening on the same day. The Morgan will also be bringing the Pashley-Morgan 110 to the Goodwood Revival on September 13-15, with customer deliveries scheduled to commence from November 2019.
