Another day, another retro bike. But with petrol prices rising rapidly, I suspect we’ll all be going for two wheels soon. And if the budget stretches to it, the Pashley Guv’nor should be worth a look.
It’s a real eye-catcher. Based on the company’s Path Racer model from the 1930s, it offers classic looks, as well as a hand-built Reynolds 531 diamond frame (in 20.5, 22.5 and 24.5-inch sizes), with relaxed style forks, Brooks B17 Titanium saddle, drop North Road handlebars with leather grips, a single speed rear wheel, 28-inch gold lined black alloy rims and light tyres front and back.
All of which will cost from £795. But keep some money back – a range of suitably retro accessories for the bike is to follow.
Thanks to Outa Spaceman for flagging this up.
