Crownfield was a motorcycle produced from 1903 to 1904 by James Perkins of Leyton, London.

The machines were only made for two years and were designed for the female market, so therefore had open frames. The engine was a 2.25hp Kerry or Givaudan, inclined within the frame loop with a guarded top belt run to keep it clear of the rider’s attire.
