Crocker was an American based motorcycle company from the 1930s that created motorbikes that rivaled the performances of those from major motorbike companies, such as Indian and Harley Davidson, of the time.
Albert G. Crocker started off as a dealer for Indian motorbikes, where he already began to customize bikes for high performance racing. He would later go on to create the Crocker Motorcycle Company and release the V-twin “Small Tank” in 1936 – the same year the Knucklehead was released by Harley. It surpassed the performance of the Indian it was based off of and the Knucklehead, achieving top speeds that neither motorbikes could reach. It was an incredible success for a bike that was produced by a small manufacturer.
In 1939, an improved “Big Tank” model was released. However, with the impending war, the inefficient production pace of a small factory and the lack of supplies due to competition from larger companies forced the company to stop motorbike production in 1942.
During the brief period of operation around 100 Crockers were produced by the company. Around half of those original Crockers are still around today, owned and kept in good conditions by motorbike enthusiast.
