On the right side of the Crocker, is that half-hoop something for the rider to hook his leg under for stability?


yes, but not that I know anything about speedway bikes. seems to have been the hot set up for the era.

Thanks for that.


Boy I could spend some time in that museum. I used to spend whole days at the Otis Chandler collection. I think motorcycles are man's attempt to create life, or at least motorized animals. Some animals are domesticated, some are not. Either way, they are fashioned as life. Or at least used to be.

its right in the city of newburgh. keep an eye on the thread and I'll get a group together in the next few weeks and we can meet up on a saturday morning for breakfast and swing on by and get the group a nice private tour and look see. it's no secret really as everyone knows V Twin the business that spawned the 40 year collection he's amassed. I just don't want people stopping by trying to talk their way in for a look. Once the preparations are complete the exhibit will be open on Saturdays and with some possibly by appointment arrangements. With the Fast From The Past bikes it truly is more than you can imagine when you see it all.

So I'm confused...is this museum open yet? Will it ever be open to the public? Does it have an address? If I wanted to drag my wife down there on a nice backroads ride from up here in Albany, could I get in? (I should also say that I can't see the pics from my machine here at work....they may shed more light on the topic.)

I'm pretty sure two posts up it says it's not open yet but preparing to open in the future for Saturday exhibits...

yes that is correct. I'm usually there a few Saturdays a month and with the warmer weather I'll make sure we get get the local advrider's by for a nice private viewing. I never get tired of watching peoples jaws drop when they see the bikes and with Chris Matthews creations periodically being added to the collection if just keeps getting better.

"public" plans are still not down in black and white as city permits and zoning regs come into play to "open a museum to the public" and that is all being worked out and on currently. So for now posting the address is kind of pointless, not that its a secret but I'll make sure we get a few Saturday morning group rides for breakfast and a swing by. I'll do anything for a free bagel with egg cheese and coffee.

Chris Matthews and a bascially built from parts if he didn't have them he made them 1907 strap tank Harley. An engine here a frame here a few sets of hubs with new rims, tires and some paint. now part of the Doering collection. viola.

one of the cool thigns about this bike and I'm sure it was "stock" on this model.

you see the boomerang shaped lever just back from the H in Harley and there is a rod that goes straight down. When you lift it up it opens a flapper which creates a straight pipe and gives more power, when closed the exhaust must pass through the muffler behind the pedal crank.

proving that even then loud pipes did save lives by preventing heart attacks on hills.
