I haven't noticed that many bikers using it but if they do you can bet it got its basis from the Wehrmacht bikers during WW2. The iron cross is a German symbol. The Germans were some of the first to employ motorcycles heavily in combat. The iron cross and other symbols like it had their base in the medieval era including the teutonic knights who the Germans used as propoganda.

You know how some bikers wear those kaizer helmets with the metal spike on top, or we think of bikers like that, its the same concept.
