1994 Aston Martin Pursuit Bike. Originally launched at the 1994 Geneva Motor Show, it was used by Tony Doyle for a promotional tour of North America to raise the profile of the Aston Martin brand. He also rode it to second place in the 1994 Commonwealth Games 5000m pursuit.

It is a Chas Roberts frame which has been shrouded in carbon fibre to give the deep aero profiles on the frames tubes. This includes a deep teardrop profile to the down tube, wrap around profile for the rear wheel behind the seat tube, aero profiling on the seat stays and inverted 'V' section to the front of the head tube. Also notable is the right hand mono bladed front fork and bespoke seat post with tear drop section. The original seat post was not strong enough so this one is mark 2. The front wheel mounts onto a cantilevered stub axle and is retained in place with a countersunk socket head screw and machined washer.

It is totally original and is as Tony Doyle rode it.

Thanks for your interest. Have to admit that I overlooked the close ups. It was late and when I came out the building and the local keyholder was waiting to lock up the car park attached to the church. I have no close ups at the moment but will upload some when I do.
