FORBES LIFE

 

Built in downtown Los Angeles between 1936 and 1942, the Crocker Big Tank and Small Tank were roaring V-twin monsters in the tradition of the Vincent and the Indian. For years they were the fastest production bikes in the world. Crockers are rare, because during World War II the company permanently shifted from making motorcycles to aircraft parts. Now Torontonian Michael Schacht has resurrected the bike, having spent seven years overseeing team that reverse- engineered the new Tanks from a pair of vintage models. With the exception of the engines and the electrical systems, which have been slightly modernized, the new Crockers are identical to the originals - almost any part on a new bike will fit an old one, and vice versa.
