82 yr old biker buried astride his beloved 1967 Harley Davidson
18 years ago, a US man made a wish to his family, that whenever it’s time for him to go, they should make sure that he goes out in style, astride his beloved 1967 Harley Davidson Electra Glide cruiser. The 82 year old’s wish was fulfilled this week.
Billy Standley loved his motorcycle, like any true biker. Everyone who knew him, knew that how crazy Billy was for his passion of motorcycling. He would keep telling his friends and family, that whenever he bids his final goodbye, he wants the world to see it. And the world did see his good-bye.
In order to make sure Billy doesn’t unseat himself during his last journey, the makers of the casket had fitted the motorcycle with metal back brace and straps. The casket was designed by Billy’s son’s Roy and Pete. Billy’s last journey was honored not only by his family, but also escorted by a procession of bikers. (via)
