The Hercules Cycle and Motor Company Limited was a British bicycle manufacturer founded on 9 September [1] in Aston in England.[2]

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.[3]

History[edit]

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. Harry assembled bicycles and Ted cycled around Birmingham for parts. Ted had problems selling because of fierce competition but soon made progress, trading on low price and high quality. Production outgrew the site and bikes were packed on the pavement. The brothers went from 25 to 70 bicycles a week within six months. They moved to a house with a yard in Conybere Street. It had 10 workers. Within a few months, production had doubled and the company moved to larger premises in Conybere Street, Highgate.

Growth[edit]

In , a third move was made to an ex-Dunlop factory in Rocky Lane, Aston. This became Hercules's Britannia Works and grew to 13 acres (53,&#;m2). It was the site of the company's offices.[3] By production rose to 10, a year. The First World War brought an order to make shells.

In Hercules exported one in five of all British cycles and, by , 40 per cent. In , it took over the Dunlop factory in Nechells, less than a mile to the north-west in Long Acre. This site was named Manor Mills.[4] The company made its six millionth bicycle in February

During this period, Birmingham had been home to a large number of cycle manufacturers, most of which did not prosper. The success of Hercules was attributed to a number of factors, including the name and production methods. After , Hercules produced the majority of the components of their bicycles, apart from the inner tubes and tyres. Factories ran using mass-production, producing more than 1, cycles a day, each taking less than 10 minutes to assemble.

Ted Crane would not employ union members. He paid 10 per cent better than the union rate, although he sacked workers who could not produce 15 per cent more than unionised workers.

Hercules exported a significant percentage of production – by the time Sir Malcolm Campbell was invited to see the three millionth bicycle in , over half the production had been sent overseas, earning £6 million and letters of congratulation from the King and Prince of Wales.

Production continued and by the end of the thirties, Hercules had produced more than six million bicycles, and could claim to be the biggest manufacturer of cycles in the world.[3]

A third factory was added in the s in Plume Street, Long Acre, a short distance from Manor Mills. By this time, Hercules had become one of the largest businesses in Aston, and helped give the area its character.[5] To this day, the mascot of Aston Villa football club is Hercules the Lion.

In , Crane sold the company to Tube Investments for three and a quarter million pounds criticising his accountant who he said had "given away the company".[6] He stayed on the board of the company. TI had been the main supplier to Hercules, providing the tubing from which the bicycle frames were made. By then, Hercules had lost its understanding of the market. Its racing bike had steel handlebars when alloy was the fashion. It had five gears when 10 were normal. It had heavy tubing and not Reynolds The last bicycles with the Hercules name were produced by Raleigh factory in Nottingham. The name was allowed to die, although Hercules registered accounts until the end of and the company was not wound up until 2 December By then it was registered at Raleigh's address in Triumph Road, Nottingham.

Tube Investments combined the company with Norman, Phillips, and Sun to form the British Cycle Corporation in Hercules adopted the slogan 'Wonder Wheels'.

[edit]

In Eileen Sheridan became involved with Hercules. She broke records for Hercules between and [7]

It was also at this time leading cyclist Derek Buttle approached Hercules about forming a racing team. In , the company agreed, and became one of the first British bicycle manufacturers to run a professional road race team. The team raced on the Continent for a couple of years and disbanded in [8] Sheridan, other time-trial professionals such as Ken Joy, and the road race team, were managed by a member of Hercules' sales staff, racing cyclist Frank Southall. He had held many records and rode for Britain in the Olympic Games. He also rode for Hercules as a professional.

Consolidation and decline[edit]

The British cycle industry suffered a downturn from this time, and Hercules was affected due to its reliance on exports – new tariffs were instituted in the US, and the Empire started to purchase bicycles produced in Africa and Asia. A attempt to diversify into moped production was largely unsuccessful. In Tube Investments made 1, employees of the British Cycle Corporation redundant, following deadlock with unions over changed working practices. Many of the workers were from Hercules factories.[9]

As a result, Tube Investments bought the Nottingham-based Raleigh Cycle Company in to form TI Raleigh Industries. Combined, they controlled 75% of the British bicycle market. Management of the British Cycle Corporation was handed to the Raleigh management, as that company with its greater domestic focus, was larger and better known. Raleigh quickly decided to cut the number of brands, and move to using Raleigh designs and standards. Production was concentrated in Nottingham in , and by there was little left of a distinctive Hercules.

The original company – still part of Raleigh – was dissolved on 2 December [2] The company archives are at the National Cycle Archive.[10]

The brand lives on as part of TI Cycles of India.[11]
