We have all heard the rags-to-riches history of one of the most revered motorcycle marques in the world, Harley-Davidson. We’ve heard the story of three Davidsons and a Harley starting the company in a backyard shed and building three vehicles back in 1903.

So, on my occasional visits to the BTR office, I often ask our editor Jesse what he would like to see me write about. On my last visit, he commented that he would like to see me write something ‘uplifting.’ A short discussion ensued regarding hydraulics and other air-powered devices that lift up our automobiles, motorcycles and a myriad of other items that need to be elevated for service or maintenance. To make matters worse I continued on about other things like…
