Reading motorcycles

Stumbled across this bit of trivia by accident. The company I am employed by is based in Readng, PA. I noted, while looking through one of my bike books, that Reading had a motorcycle manufacturer in the early 20th Century. They were quite innovative being the first bike company to use a side valve engine.  They were bought out by the Cleveland motorcycle company who dropped the Reading name prior to Cleveland themselves failng because of the 1929 Wall Street crash.
