The India-based group is an essential piece of two-wheeler history and its main product the “Bullet” is a design classic, dating back to 1932 when it was unveiled for the first time by the original British manufacturer.Demand is so great that Eicher, which came close to shutting Enfield at one stage, has agreed to invest in a new Rs 100 crore ( million) greenfield factory near Chennai that will double production capacity from 70,000 bikes a year to 150,000 in 2013.A range of other models have been offered in the past few years, modified by the importer to produce a variety of styles and types, but the prices have been climbing as these became more costly to modify.This basic Bullet, though, is just £3,995, down in scooter territory yet with a half-litre engine, and it’s pretty much as it comes out of the Chennai factory. The question now is, how much like the old, original Bullet can the latest one be, given its modern, emissions-compliant engine and updated frame and running gear?These occupations in his early years gave him engineering knowledge and skill and also a lifelong interest in two wheel transport.Competition in the cycle trade was very fierce and after a short while 'Rath' Pashley realised that success would come through identifying a market niche. Pashley Ltd and moved to a larger new factory (over 30,000 square feet) in Chester Street, Aston.A new company, Pashley Carrier Cycles, was formed to concentrate on building carrier cycles designed to withstand the abuse thrown at them by errand boys. As prosperity returned after the depression, the company increasingly focused on delivery and vending tricycles - for dairy products, ice cream and general deliveries.In the 1930s, Pashley made almost every component of their cycles in their own factory - for the frames, only the tubing and lugs were bought in.
You don’t have to buy a classic to get an authentic feel of Fifties and Sixties British bikes.
In 1926, William Rathbone 'Rath' Pashley founded Pashley and Barber in New John Street West, Birmingham.
Pashley and Barber declared that they were 'Manufacturers of every type of cycle' and that 'Birmingham produces the finest cycles, these are Birmingham's best'.
It is an exhilarating feeling to be able to fix your own bike - to be independent.
