The family of Billy Standley, of Mechanicsburg, Ohio, carried out his wish to be buried on his 1967 Harley Davidson motorcycle Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, hauling a large Plexiglas casket to Fairview Cemetery in Crawford County, Ohio. Standley's family said he'd been talking about being buried on his Harley for years. His sons, Pete and Roy, fashioned the casket out of Plexiglas, reinforcing the bottom with wood and steel rods to handle the extra weight. Five embalmers worked to prepare Standley's body with a metal back brace and straps to ensure he'll never lose his seat. (AP Photo/The News-Sun, Marshall Gorby)
