When I worked at a MoCo dealership in ‘74 and did all the make readies, we did not have a fork lift. Imagine my shock when they rolled a couple road grader tires out from behind the building and had me push the crates out of the back of a semi onto the tires.

Of course the Shortsters and Sprints were no problem. Sportsters and FX required some careful planning. Full dressers needed a tow strap wound around the tires to keep them stable. I’m amazed to say that we never had any damages. They were that well packed.
