Crown Cycles was
formed in 1948 by its founder, W. J. Cloete, after returning from
World War II, while being stationed at the Crown Mines. Situated in
the suburb of Claremont, it was one of the First Bicycle Shops in
W.J. Cloete was later joined in the
1950's by his Son, William Frank Cloete. William was one of the Top
Road and Track Cyclists in the Western Cape at the time, Winning
some of the biggest Races around, like the 25 Mile (ixl trophy)
Track Race on 3 Occasions.(1959,1961,1962) William was one of the
fastest Sprinters around and very few cyclists could pass him in a
Sprint to the Finish Line. William eventually took over the Business
from his Dad. Crown Cycles provided Bicycles Sales, all Bicycle
Spares and Repaired any type of Bicycle available at that time.
