After a reviewing journalist coined the term, they were known as the Rolls Royce of Motorcycles. Probably best known as the preferred mount of Lawrence of Arabia, who owned seven, died on one and had one on order at the time. These Machines were created by George Brough (1882-1969). Their speed and build quality were legendary and one set a flying kilometer mark of 169.8 mph in 1937.
American Al Crocker was a Northwestern-educated engineer, born the same year as Brough. He began building single-cylinder speedway bikes in the early thirties, but also, like Brough, his lasting legacy was his 1000cc V-Twins of which less than 200 were built between 1936 and the war. They were fast enough that Crocker offered a refund to any of his clients who were beaten by another stock motorcycle. Crockers motorcycle first V-Twin will be among those present.
Crocker 1938 will be one of the featured marques at the Legend of the Motorcycle. This 1938 Crocker small tank belonged to the late Otis Chandler, one of the great car and motorcycle guys of his generation. More specs and user manual of Crocker 1938 you can see in next overview.
