The name Hercules was chosen for its associations of durability and robustness. The company was founded by Edmund and Harry Crane and started life in Coventry Street, Birmingham , England , initially producing 25 bicycles a week. Crane’s parents bought the Petros Cycle Company which was subsequently managed by Edmund’s mother, Edith. Their children, Harry and Ted, left school at 14 and helped their parents with the business. In Jack Crane was declared bankrupt and the family moved to Lightwoods Hill. There they sold bikes at auctions. The bankruptcy finding meant they were bought in the mother’s name and sold to the sons even though she had also been made bankrupt. In , Harry and Ted rented a derelict house in Coventry Street, using a name they had already registered in , the Hercules Cycle and Motor Company.
The Golden Age of 3 Speeds
The bicycle industry, centered in the enormous Raleigh factory in Nottingham, was one of the most important in the country. The workers who built these bicycles rode the same kind of bicycles to work. My Superbe Roadster. Roadsters have never been truly popular in the United States, but they are not truly rare, either.
This does date the bike to onwards as that’s when their Britannia factory in Birmingham was opened. Hercules, then part of Raleigh, didn’t.

Adding to basket…
That was, until I found an old bike. My source of information, though, was a merry chap who appeared at my door in search of his lost post, and just like any random stranger who turns up at your door, no matter how merry, what he says should probably be taken with a pinch of salt. Have you spent weeks in a library interrogating leather-bound relics? The plan, naturally, is to restore it.

Hercules Cycle and Motor Company
By mcspool , June 23, in British Vehicles. I’m after information about the Hercules Cycle and Motor Company , more specifically whether they supplied bicycles to the British forces before the end of WW2? All I found about their involvement in wartime production is that they made bipod legs, gas cylinders and magazines for Bren guns source.
But since they were one of Britain’s largest bicycle manufacturers, I guess they did supply them, but I need more detailed information. I own an ex- Netherlands Army bicycle, which I acquired it via cycle repair shop which bought a lot of bicycles from a local Army garrison in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. The first layer of paint is black, then some sort of Army green, and then olive drab.
Could anyone please confirm this is indeed a Hercules bicycle and would anyone be able to date it by its frame number CB ?
