Celebrating the making of the one-millionth Brompton, we proudly present the Brompton Archive Edition—1,000 special edition bikes inspired by our founder and the community of owners that got us here.
We delved into our archives to revive three unmistakable Brompton colours. Apple Green, Baby Pink and Arctic Blue. Each bike is designed around the original Mk1 specification – expertly engineered by Andrew Ritchie in 1975 to be a useful tool
in the city and beyond.
A special edition C Line with original MK1 details.
True to the original, the Archive Edition has a robust, handmade steel frame. Three hub gears for all-weather riding. Dynamo lights powered by your movement. And a silver rear rack for carrying cargo. The Brooks C17 Saddle rewards you with mile after mile of flexible comfort, come rain or shine.
