Whether you are a fan of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, or not, every once in a while an H-D rider displays so much passion for his/her brand that it kind of blows your mind. Take Billy Standley, for instance, who was buried last week in a see-through Plexiglas casket aboard his 1967 Electra Glide.
According to several published reports, Standley had told his family this was his wish for many years, and his sons built the unusual casket for him before his death. Standley died of lung cancer at age 82. The video below shows Standley and his beloved Harley-Davidson being lowered together into the ground (he apparently had to purchase the equivalent of 3 normal plots at the cemetery). His perfect posture and grip on the handlebars are courtesy of metal braces and straps.
