Big night Thursday March 7 in Daytona for Bert and Lisa Baker, co-founders of Baker Drivetrain. Their collaborators, friends, custom builders and medias present in Daytona gathered at the Broken Spoke Saloon to celebrate the most talented couple of the V-Twin industry. Both former engineers at GM they have revolutionized the motorcycle driveline by bringing to us every year and even several times each year since 1998 very high quality innovative Drivetrain products, systems and components all made in the USA. From their 5 & 6-speed left and right side drive transmissions for Harley-Davidson motorcycles and custom applications, to the Drop-starter slammed Clutch, to the Function Formed Primary to Clutches and many other premium upgrades for baggers and metric bikes, the Baker family (Bert, Lisa & Crew), has become the Worldwide Drivetrain Authority.
After being treated to a buffet, the industry watched videos of the Baker’s children and employees congratulating Bert & Lisa for being such good parents and such good and loved employers. Although not the type of man to cry on stage, Bert was extremely moved and hid his emotions behind a few jokes. Lisa didn’t even try to hide her tears when confronted with such testimony of affection from their kids, employees and clients. And it was a total surprise for them when was unveiled a bike secretly built to celebrate these last 10 years of continuous success. A truly beautiful and memorable evening for them and all of us. Baker Drivetrain.
