Glenn H. Curtiss was an American aviation pioneer and a founder of the U.S. aircraft industry. He began his career as a bicycle racer and builder before moving on to motorcycles. In 1902, Curtiss began manufacturing motorcycles with his own single-cylinder engines. His first motorcycle carburetor was adapted from a tomato soup can containing a gauze screen to pull the gasoline up via capillary action. In 1907, Curtiss set an unofficial record of 136 miles per hour on a 40 horsepower V8-powered motorcycle of his own design and construction in Ormond Beach, Florida. Curtiss' success at racing strengthened his reputation as a leading maker of high-performance motorcycles and engines.
