Mike Price, an automotive engineer from Auckland, New Zealand had a brainstorm while attending the funeral of a friend five years ago. His friend was a biker who didn’t drive a car, but was transported to his final resting place in a Ford LTD. Mike thought that there had to be a more fitting hearse for those who prefer two wheels over four, so he sketched out his idea for a motorcycle hearse.
Price sent his design concept to Harley Davidson, who replied with a lengthy and restrictive contract before they would even take a look. Rather that drag lawyers into it, Price built the prototype with his own money in his free time. He now hopes to begin limited production if he can find an interested backer.
