Motorcycle Funerals.

For That Special Last Ride.

Motorcycle Funerals

We believe peoples lifestyles should be reflected in their funeral. This is just another aspect of creating that bespoke funeral for that special person.

Motorcycle Hearse History

After the war a combination was devised to carry the deceased from battle fields. This can still be seen at a Norfolk museum. Attached to a Norton this was basically a crude coffin on a hinge rather than a professional hearse, considered undignified and never used. Amongst UK motorcyclists a tradition emerged where a sidecar would be removed so that the coffin could be carried on the chassis. In the late 1990s a few sidecar chassis adaptations were launched professionally in Australia. Each had a platform with various forms of cover.

In Australia this proved ideal but with our weather such an open deck would not work. What UK motorcyclists needed was an agile, powerful and tasteful motorcycle combination for a dry final ride. The first literal motorcycle hearse was launched in 2002.

There are other motorcycles available, including various Triumphs and a Suzuki Hyabusa.

Thank you again for yesterday. My family were very grateful for the way you all dealt with everything and we were very pleased with how smoothly everything ran yesterday.I felt it was a very fitting send off for my mum and we appreciated everything Lucking & Sons did for us.

Thank you both so much for your expert care and dedication shown to us, on our very sad loss. Everything went so well and just what my Mother wanted and wished for. I know see would have been so proud. Thank You So Much.

Many Thanks for all you did at Mum's funeral in such dreadful weather. Please pass on my thanks to all your colleagues who also did so much to make the Occassion run so smoothly. I really appreciate your help and kindness in making mum's last journey so trouble free.
