anyone who has read the book "Iron Redskin" by Harry Sucher note , that everything written on pages 294 - 297 is wrong.
the book has never been edited since being released in 1977, and reprinted how ever many times.
no one bothered to check up on the info / mis-info.

Al was born in 1887 not 1882 . Al's older brother George was born in 1882
When Al worked for Indian in 1911 , Bigsby was 12 yrs old . Bigsby was never Al's Boss!!
Wikipedia has all the info stuffed , and so does the new Cr0cker mc co !!

there is in fact a photo of Grant Looper , post war with Crockers. His sister Bev recalls the two of them riding up to Sacramento when Murray had his crash in 1955.

the bike in the trailor is a Knucklehead motor. a later bike was built with Knuckle heads on a Crocker motor, possibly the heads from this racer. ….. think about that one

note : the added pic is NOT Albert Crocker, that pic is from the net of god knows who ….
the right hand side below the Elmo and Ted photo is not written by me.

the 13 rebels were the top 13 racers of 1937 , Elmo was not one of them, he joined later on.

calling Ernie Skelton as "Elmo's best friend" is along the lines of a fabrication.
Its unlikely there is a photo that shows the 2 guys together.
Elmo's son , Kirk remembers Skelton but not as anyone significant **
