Remembering Bill Crosby

May 4, 2020
 
Bill Crosby – here on the right, with ex-racer Paul Smart – was a familiar face, thanks to running Triumph specialists Reg Allen and the London Motorcycle Museum.

Well known motorcycle dealer and museum proprietor Bill Crosby passed away in hospital after a brief illness on Sunday, March 29, 2020, a month before his 88th birthday.

Bill ran Reg Allen (London) for 60 years, was a Triumph main agent and also nurtured scramblers, sidecar racers and 24 hour production racers with his sponsorship, knowledge and enthusiasm.

In 1999 he opened the London Motorcycle Museum and continued that for 20 years. For the last year or so he had attempted retirement, but his head remained firmly in motorcycle mode until the end.In the current situation his funeral will be, by necessity, a small family affair but there’s a JustGiving page – JustGiving/donations/BillCrosby – in his memory which will remain open until after his memorial party, to take place when all this current situation is over.

It is in aid of the British Legion as he said that his years in the Army were the best of his life, second only to motorcycling.
