Princess Sovereign


If you're interested in purchasing a bike please call the store.

The quintessential English town and country bicycle. Perhaps the world's first luxury bike - and still handmade in Pashley's Stratford-upon-Avon factory. Traditional style. Impeccable details. It doesn't get more romantic than this.

The Pashley Princess is a direct descendent of bicycles built by Pashley in the 1920s. The frames are crafted by hand in Pashley's Stratford-upon-Avon factory using the traditional construction of steel tubes brazed into lugs. The frame geometry is carried over from the original Pashley models. Even the wheel sizes are entirely authentic to the classic English bicycle.

The Princess Sovereign is built on a beautifully made classic upright English steel frame in either Buckingham Black or Regency Green. The Brooks leather saddle softens as you use it and forms to your body shape. Matching gold-lined fenders, fully enclosed chain guard and skirt guard keep your clothes clean and dry while riding in the city or the country. Swept-back handlebars keep you comfortably upright so you can enjoy the sights. A honey wicker basket with bottom support keeps your belongings in sight. The rear Pletscher rack can hold panniers or rear baskets for trips to the market. Your pedaling powers the front headlight. A frame mounted air pump is always available to top off the tires no matter where you are. 5 speeds from the internal Sturmey Archer gear hub help you climb hills. The internal drum brakes last practically forever and work just as well in the rain and snow as they do on a sunny day.

All 3 sizes (SML, MED, LRG) and both colors are usually in stock.

A full range of Pashley leather handlebar and saddle bags are also available.
