Top ‘o the evenin’ to ya, Guv’nor. Ã‚Â Pashley had this non-production spec Guv’nor on display, featuring a cable-less internally geared hub,Ã‚Â gold lugs and bits and leather tape and seat. Ã‚Â Distinguished folk may read “more” to educate themselves further on this and other fine bicycles…
The hub bolts are classic wingnuts, made from the same molds they were made from in 1926. Ã‚Â The frame (which you can buy, sans Gold bits) is made of Reynolds 531, a classic steel mix that was brought back to life specifically for this bike.
Look, madam, no cables. Ã‚Â The Sachs duomatic rear hub shifts by backpedaling slightly, providing multiple speeds for stylish bootleggers looking to outrun theÃ‚Â paddy wagons. Ã‚Â Stock Guv’nor’s come as either single- or three-speed, with MSRP’s of $1,795 and $1,895 respectively.
The Roadster Sovereign is a “whale amongst minnows”, transporting its rider in comfort and style with its 28″ wheels and upright riding position. Ã‚Â The chain cover, coat guards and fenders keep you clean, and the hub-driven headlamp and rear LED’s help you arrive safely. Ã‚Â The frame is lugged/brazed steel, with a steel rear rack with integrated fold-down bike stand. Ã‚Â It is offered with a range of leather accessories.
This, and the women’s version below, feature integrated locks and Sturmey Archer 5-speed hubs.
The Princess Sovereign’s features are largely the same as the Roadster above it, but comes with a nice wicker basket. Ã‚Â This liberating machine has ladies escaping the home in droves. Ã‚Â From that new found freedom and the ensuing wild behaviour, Pashley, of course, is offering the following bike:
This fancy number greeted booth visitors and provided an easy way to disseminate literature and, while they lasted, the coolest cycling t-shirts ever. Ã‚Â Called the DeliBike, it’s actually a production model intended for promotional purposes. Ã‚Â The large panel under the top tube is called the “advertising panel”. Ã‚Â It comes with that huge wicker basket, too.
Pashley offers a wide range of cruiser, city, special needs and work bikes, too.
