Crocker Bob Job?


Rich has informed me that this is actually a 101 scout with overhead conversion. One day Rich I'll stump you!

Jedd, that is Paul Bigsby's prototype overhead valve 101 Indian Scout w/JD tranmission. A friend of mine owns it. I did a story about it and Paul for the AMCA magazine back in 2000. He used to be president of the LA 45's M/C back in the 40's. He was the pattern maker for Albert Crocker. He also was big in running of races at some of the old Socal tracks like Carrol speedawy in L.A. He also invented the wammy bar for electric guitars. Way cool machine. Rich P.S. How am I doing?

Jedd, seen your comment about the name bobber below this post after my comment here. I don't care what name is used as long as you ride it. I just look at historical aspect. Now you've done it, CUTDOWNS. Mostly JD,s with altered frames. I can send you an article out of a 1932 magazine on how to cut the frame, tanks, and handle bars if you'd like. I'm done, Rich

All right Rich. I guess this is why your the Dr. You are making me look like a fool! I actually got this pic off the Crocker web site I guess they don't even know what it is. I'd love to see the Cutdown article. From know on I am going to send you all my pictures first for approval and commentary. FHJ
