Pashley was founded in 1926 by William ‘Rath’ Pashley. In his early years he apprenticed at the Austin motor Company before serving as a despatch rider in the First World War. Although he focused on two wheeled transport at Pashley, he also developed a small range of motorised vehicles. One of these light weight vehicles, ‘The Pashley Superior’, was developed for the sale of Ice Cream! A restored original of the ‘Superior’ will be on show outside The Traditional Cycle Shop in Stratford-upon-Avon for the Stratford Festival of Motoring 2018, on the 6 & 7th May 2018. Feel free to pop-along and take a look.
