An Ohio man took his love of motorcycles to the grave -- literally.
Billy Standley of Mechanicsville was buried Thursday while sitting atop his 1967 Harley-Davidson motorcycle in a Plexiglas casket, Columbus TV station WBNS reported.
It took five embalmers, three extra burial plots and steel reinforcements to make it happen.
Standley's custom-made casket was pulled to the cemetery by a pickup truck.
He had requested an outdoor funeral so his biker friends could see him off, according to WBNS.
Standley's children said the motorcycle helped him keep a sense of adventure after settling down to raise four kids.
