A bicycle: for a child, it’s the opportunity to explore new horizons and take a first step towards true independence. For an adult, it’s the perfect way to dart around a busy city, or maybe just a well-earned indulgence. But, no matter who it’s for, a bike always makes the perfect birthday gift.

So, as Morgan celebrates a rather special anniversary – its 110th – how better to mark the occasion than with the creation of a bicycle all of its own? A birthday gift to itself, if you will.

That’s where Pashley Cycles has come in. It’s a brand which possibly represents Morgan’s pedal-powered equivalent. Similarly steeped in history, the bikemaker holds dear the values of craftsmanship, quality materials and unique design, just like Morgan.

The result is the Pashley-Morgan 110 Limited Edition. Just 110 will be made, each individually numbered with a speedometer-style engraving to the headset cap.

The bike is fillet brazed – a welding method that creates a much stronger frame – by Pashley’s time-served craftsmen using Reynolds 725 tubing, and incorporates a custom-formed top tube, distinctive S-bend seat stays and unique dropouts with etched stainless faces.

The bike is finished in a celebratory Satin Champagne coating with Morgan 110 graphics and subtle livery inspired by Morgan’s heritage. Other features include hand-stitched black leather grips, Morgan switchgear-inspired aluminium end caps, and a Brooks Black Cambium C15 vulcanised rubber saddle with organic cotton surface.

Colour-matched aluminium mudguards with stainless steel hardware compliment the frame, offering practicality for all-season riding. The bike also features a 1×10 drivetrain – echoing the ‘110’ theme – with a wide range cassette, and powerful hydraulic brakes. High-volume tyres offer a fast rolling but comfortable ride across a variety of surfaces.

This isn’t the first bike that Morgan and Pashley have collaborated on, though. Last year, the brands launched the Pashley-Morgan 3 and 8 models, which became an immediate hit with Morgan owners and enthusiasts alike.

The Pashley-Morgan 110 Limited Edition will make its debut at the Eurobike 2019 show in Friedrichshafen, Germany on 5 September 2019, and be shown in the UK for the first time at Goodwood Revival on 13-15 September 2019. Orders for the bike will open at Eurobike 2019, and first deliveries are scheduled for November 2019.

The Pashley-Morgan range is available to purchase through the Morgan Motor Company directly, Morgan’s global network of Dealerships, and selected Pashley Cycles outlets worldwide. In the UK, the bike will be priced at £1,750.
