    Thumbs down

    plenty of plagiarized inaccurate hyperbole that I have heard many times before. Crockers have become the most over rated bike of all time.

    I figured as much. It's an interesting read but like you said there's a lot of b.s. floating around about the Crocker. It's the mystique man! There just wasn't a whole lot of them made and they are a stout enough machine to be noticed when one does pop up. I'm still a fan but I'm also a little more skeptical of the "legend" now. As a youngster I dreamed of having one but that thought was finally dashed after the Half Moon Bay deal..... they exploded exponentially in the dinero department..... Yikes can a sickle be worth the kind of money they are fetching? That was a loaded question folks we've beat values to death on this forum already.......

    I agree with Barry, and he should know. The Crocker is a great bike and deserves to be held in high esteem but I consider other bikes of the time to be more technically developed, and just better looking. Certain objects have that "certain something" that makes them stand out and apparently Crockers have "it".

    there is not one bloody original Crocker part on that thing! It's an INDIAN with a home made ohv conversion NOT a Crocker! It should be called a "DECEPTION 101"

    I am certainlly no expert but I have been told that Crocker made OHV conversions for Indians. Any truth to it?
