1919 The Corona Junior was first announced – with a 448cc sv four-stroke single engine. The plan was to produce the machine in large quantities from early in the year. The design was quite striking and amongst many of the special features was a patented auto-lubrication system and knock-out wheel spindles, and a very eye-catching black and white striped tank. Several transmission options were also available.
1920 The design was revised and the automatic lubrication system was replaced by mechanical-pump oiling. The two-speed gear option was withdrawn.
1922 Only a three-speed model with a Sturmey-Archer gearbox survived for that year, and then the marque disappeared.
