Corona were motorcycles produced from 1901 to 1904 (1924?).

This was a small company that had originally dealt in cycles. They, like many other firms of the era, entered the market by adding an engine to a heavy-duty bicycle. Engines used would have been Belgian Minerva or French Clement, as well as British copies as they became available.
