I’m a big fan of Crocker Motorcycles, as you can see here. When I heard a while back that Crocker also offers fully built bikes per the original factory specs, I started to cry. First for joy, and secondly because I don’t know how my wife will ever forgive me for blowing the kid’s college fund on one.
I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I get there. Just kidding, honey.
Crocker introduced motorcycle design innovations that set his V-twin ahead of the Harleys and Indians of the mid 30’s and 40’s. The transmission could withstand incredible amounts of torque. This beautifully engineered three speed transmission coupled with a unique proprietary engine of Crocker’s own design laid shame to anything that dared cross its path. Featuring overhead valves, Crocker’s engine was released to the public months ahead of Harley’s venerable “Knuckle Head” with more than enough horsepower to keep it ahead of the Harley crowd. The Crocker’s zero to sixty mph first gear score murdered all competition. The hemi head equipped stock machines peaked at 60hp propelling the factory produced, stock bikes, to speeds in excess of 110 mph. Even hopped up bikes couldn’t come close.
