So why are you reading about this here? Because Bigsby was also a big name in the world of motorcycles. In the Roaring Twenties he was a renowned racer and helped found the legendary 45 Club of Los Angeles. In '34 he began organizing races, and even wrote articles for Motorcyclist's _precursor, The _Motorcyclist, under the alias Professor Popper. And if that isn't enough of a connection, for a time Bigsby was also Chief Engineer at Crocker Motorcycles, responsible for designing the company's first OHV system. After WWII Bigsby let his imagination loose in the music industry, but motorcycles were never far from his mind.
