He earned seven gold medals and two silver medals in ISDT competition. Cranke is also remembered for his tuning abilities with two-stroke engines and was also credited with helping develop Penton motorcycles. Pentons were off-road competition motorcycles primarily designed and sold in the United States by John Penton.
