The family of an American biker has fulfilled his wish to be buried on his beloved Harley-Davidson in a see-through casket.

The body of Billy Standley from Ohio was taken for one last ride sitting on his 1967 Electra Glide cruiser en route to the cemetery.

Dorothy Brown, Bill’s daughter, described her father as “a man who had the wanderlust”.

Mourners at the funeral could see the 82 year old through the Plexiglas coffin. Prior to his death he had bought three large burial plots next to his wife, Lorna.

He was known to show off his casket when visitors stopped by his home.

Described as a “quirky man” by his family, they said they understood people’s shock at seeing their dead father, however they wanted to honour his wishes.
