WILLIAMS HUNT – THE STORY

It was in 1886, just 12 months after gold was discovered on the Witwatersrand that Henry Hunt, a Londoner who had come to South Africa fired up by the news of the fortunes to be made on the diamond fields of Kimberley.

Johannesburg beckoned with its promise of golden riches and Henry correctly identified the need for transport in the dusty streets of the boom town. This was the age of the horse and buggy and for many who could not afford a horse, a humble bicycle. In 1903, together with a partner, Henry Hunt opened a bicycle shop in downtown Johannesburg on the site of what is now the Supreme Court, unknowingly laying the foundations for the Williams Hunt Delta dynasty.

Two of his three sons did however immigrate and together they made a fresh start. Despite heroic efforts “Williams Hunt and Co Direct Importers” continued to struggle for survival. Mrs Hunt finally arrived in South Africa bringing with her an infusion of £300 into the business.

That was the turning point although initial efforts to introduce motorcycles to South Africa failed (they were just too finicky for the non-mechanically minded customers of the day) and bicycles continued to provide a solid basis for the business.

The tide turned with the franchise for the “Indian Motor Cycle”, a tough machine able to stand up to the vagaries of the South African conditions. The Hunts’ put The Indian on the map with imaginative publicity stunts, including a race against the mail train from Durban to Johannesburg – which The Indian won!

On the strength of these early successes the first Williams Hunt branch opened in Durban in 1914 and others soon followed. The future lay with the “horseless carriage” however, and on a visit to America the Hunts found a vehicle that suited South African conditions admirably.
