That is what Crocker was doing before he made his own bikes, making the OHV conversion for Indians. There are a few of them around. Also his Speedway bikes.

Used to see a Crocker OHV conversion, in the South Bay area about 20 years ago, too bad that sort of stuff is too valuable for people to ride around anymore !

thanks for the shout out -- but credit for that particular image should go to Lloyd Gadd of Mostly Ironheads in Ontario. I know zilch about Indians or Crockers for that matter and wouldn't have spotted this in a million years :-)


That said, thanks for pointing it out. I love learning new things -- and this is fascinating to me.

I see you from Chicago, that's Koslow territory , another OHV conversion kit. A well known guy up in Canada has bike with Koslow kit. He also has Crocker.
