Albert Crocker, a veteran of the American motorcycle industry, started building parts for speedway machines in the early Thirties, and graduated to building complete racers in 1933. Crocker single cylinder racers were competitive against the best from overseas, and were ridden by many of the top speedway stars.

In 1935, Crocker started building overhead valve V-twins with constant mesh transmissions. Beautifully styled, rugged, and extremely fast for the day, the Crocker road machines could beat almost anything on the road.

The first Crockers had hemispherical cylinder heads, but, starting in 1937, the hemi heads were replaced by vertical valve heads which were almost as powerful and much more reliable. In 1939, a larger gas tank replaced the original, small tank, and the instrument panel was redesigned.

Although only 40 or so speedway bikes and approximately 70 road machines were completed before production stopped as a result of World War II, most Crockers have survived, and are today some of the most treasured classic motorcycles.
