BAKER reverse drives Lehman ahead

    TSXV - LHT

    CALGARY, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - Lehman is extremely pleased to announce an
agreement has been signed with BAKER Drivetrain(TM). BAKER is internationally
known for its premium drivetrain innovations for American-made motorcycles.
The much awaited BAKER F6R reverse modifies the original Harley-Davidson(R)
six-speed transmission which has been jointly tested by Lehman and BAKER and
is exclusive to the two companies. Lehman trikes powered by
Harley-Davidson's(R) 2006-2008 Dyna and 2007-2008 FL and Softail are the only
trikes which will be available with Baker reverse at this time. The reverse
gear will be available for shipment to dealers and factory conversions during
the first week of December 2007.
    BAKER Drivetrain(TM) designed and created the BAKER OD6 (6-Speed
Overdrive) transmission for the American V-Twin industry which revolutionized
the drivetrain industry. BAKER strives to retain the integrity of their design
technologies, methods and products. They believe that their innovative
products continue to make significant contributions to the development of the
American motorcycle industry.
    Lehman and BAKER state that the new reverse complements the
Harley-Davidson(R) factory 6-speed like a true Original Equipment option. The
BAKER reverse is selected with the foot shift lever and a safety switch.
Dealer installation of the reverse is relatively straightforward for those
familiar with the Harley-Davidson(R) six-speed transmission. Dealers who
prefer factory conversions can depend on quality installations by BAKER
trained technicians at the Lehman assembly plant. Additionally, BAKER
Drivetrain(TM) directly supports a limited three (3) year/unlimited mileage
    Dan Patterson, President of Lehman stated, "The agreement between BAKER
and Lehman has been in the works for some time. The agreement has come to
fruition and we could not be more delighted. For months, BAKER and Lehman have
diligently worked on the reverse gear, including extensive testing by both
companies. BAKER is an outstanding company, possessing both integrity and
first-rate individuals in their ranks. We feel that the addition of BAKER
Drivetrain(TM) to our growing list of strategic partners is good for both
companies, as well as the industry. Once again, as 'the trike company' and
'Leader of the Three World,' we have added yet another 'first' to our
ever-expanding list of cutting edge innovations, products and programs."
