Photograph of Elmo Looper of the "13 Rebels M/C" aboard his 1940 Crocker Big Tank bobber in the late 40's. Elmo was considered the person who saved Crocker from extinction by buying what was left of the Crocker Motorcycle parts from Al Crocker. Many of these parts have helped otherwise unrestorable bikes come back to life. Photograph from poster available at "Carl's Cycle Supply".

Photograph of Jack Lilly on his Crocker number 39-61-103 in 1940. Jack was an original "Boozefighter". The "Boozefighters" were the original "Black Rebels" from the Marlon Brando movie "The Wild Ones". Jack was also a personal friend of Kenny Howard a.k.a. "Von Dutch". For more on Jack Lilly see the article "Crocker Jack" in our History section. This Motorcycle is currently restored and owned by Daniel Statnekov . Jack owned 39-61-103 until 1941. In 1955 Jack also owned a completely white Crocker twin previously owned by Jim Kimball. The photograph from the "Crocker Motorcycle Co" collection.

Photograph of Miny Waln at speed at one of two overhead cammed Crockers that are known to exist. This one is a "Cummerford / JAP frame. This picture was probably taken on March 22 1936 at the Long Beach, California Race Track.
