Steve Lunam has owned and ridden motorcycles for over 25 years. It has become increasingly apparent to him just how many people share his passion for motorcycling.

"It was joining a local HOG (Harley Owners Group) that really brought home the old saying, Harley-Davidson is not just a motorcycle, it is a way of life", Steve remarked. There is something about two wheeled machines of any make that instantly coverts its operator from a rider to an enthusiast. It seems that once someone experiences the thrill and exhilaration of motorcycling, the bug is hard to shake.

Steve also owns and rides classic British motorcycles and it was attending the funeral of an old mate who had ridden for over fifty years that he thought it would be a fitting tribute to make the final journey on two wheels.

Steve set about building a motorcycle hearse using his Harley-Davidson Road King as the power unit. He approached funeral industry professionals for advice so that he could build the machine to industry standards. Phil Shipway from Olsen's Funerals advised on industry requirements and Troy Hillier from Hillier Design advised on design and supplied the chrome running gear.

The machine has been awarded for its stunning design from even within the Harley-Davidson Company.

Steve says that what gives him greatest satisfaction is that he can provide a vehicle which can be utilised to pay the greatest tribute to a life lived on two wheels. And the funeral industry has a readily available vehicle to offer to a grieving family or friends who may be searching for an appropriate tribute with which to send off their loved one.
