The first Harley belt drive was on the original motorcycle built in 1903. But it was a flat leather belt driving a pulley bolted to the rear wheel. The first modern toothed rubber drive belt was on the 1980 Harley's.

You fail to list the make, model, year, and engine size of the vehicle you are asking about. Therefore I can only tell you to look at the belt. You will see one pulley that is not driving anything. That is the tensioner pulley.

How do you put serpentine belt on a 1997 Pontiac sunbird?

Locate the BELT TENSIONER, remove pressure (Tension) with appropriate Tool, remove Belt, replace. You may well need to remove A/C Belt before removing Drive belt and to do this, one will need a 15mm Wrench to loosen bolt on Idler Pulley for A/C Belt AND a 15mm or larger Socket with Extension bit for Ratchet to loosen assembly holding Idler Pulley to effect room needed to remove A/C Belt from Idler Pulley, then removing Drive Belt. Not all engines are designed the same--I am referencing from a '93 Sunbird with a 2.0 L4. There should be a diagram on Hood underside or Engine bay framework to assist with Drive Belt routing and if not, consult a Repair Manual (Chilton or Haynes) specific to that Vehicle Year/Model.
