Image: Photograph of Jack Lilly’s Crocker number 39-61-103 in 1939. This is how this Crocker was originally painted from the factory. The colors were navy blue with red and white pinstripes. It also had a chromed rear brake backing plate, rear chain guard, seat springs and upper shackle. The photograph from the ‘Crocker Motorcycle Co’ collection.
“Al Crocker invented machines that were well ahead of their time in design and function. His bikes were visually pleasing, as Crocker seemed to have a perfect eye for form and balance, for color and simplicity. They were such great examples of fluidity of design that they seemed to be moving, even in still photos. The innovative styling was equally matched by record-breaking performance.”
