The first CHiP's motorcycle prototype

A motorcycle that has a high-capable power as an operational vehicle for law enforcement on the highway has become a necessity. This is what might have thought by law enforcers incorporated in the California Highway Patrol (CHiP) unit in the early 1940s. 

So then they tried to make a motorcycle prototype for this purpose and then send it to the motorcycle maker as an appropriate sample.

Well, LeGrand Jordan is one of the first California Highway Patrol officers, and in 1947 he developed a motorcycle prototype that was named the Jordan and was used as a motorcycle for pursuing the traffic violator vehicles on the highways.

The Jordan motorcycle adopts a Twin crankshaft Four shaft engine which has a 1,000 cc of capacity and reversed rotating to balance the bike. This bike uses a streamline pressed-steel body also serves as a motorcycle frame.

Jordan made the motorcycle as a sample and then offered to the various motorcycle factories to be made, but none of them were interested to produce it because of the design of such a complex.

So the Jordan Twin Crank Four prototype sits in pristine and unique glory, one of 20 classics in the Otis Chandler Motorcycle Gallery of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
