This intriguing series is tailor-made for curious families, packaging entertainment and education in a way that appeals to everyone from grade schoolers through adults. One episode documents the assembly process of Harley's new V-Rod motorcycle at the company's 10-acre factory in Kansas City. Viewers watch as piles of parts become rumbling engines, sheets of metal get pressed into fenders, chrome pipes are delicately attached to the bike's frame, and the final products are crated for shipment. Along the way, employees explain how high-tech lasers and diagnostic machinery add precision and speed to the assembly process, and computer graphics help demonstrate how the tools work.

Kids who wonder how things work will be particularly intrigued, though they might need some extra explanation when it comes to technical jargon or plant operations.
