An Ohio man got his wish this week -to be buried on his 1967 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Billy Standley was buried seated on his bike in a Plexiglass casket. Standley started planning this 18 years ago.

It took five embalmers, three extra burial plots, and steel reinforcements to make it happen.

Standley also wanted an outdoor funeral so his bikers friends could see him off.

His children say the motorcycle helped him keep a sense of adventure after he settled down to raise four kids.
