Tom F. asked questions about the Krause Funeral Home Motorcycle Hearse, “tell me about the Harley hearse–what type of bike is it and who uses it?”
It is a 19th century-style hearse drawn by a V-twin-powered 3-wheel Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle.
It is chosen by families interested in an original way to personalize a loved one’s final journey and by families of motorcycle enthusiasts. The first time it was driven was to a 97 year-old woman’s committal service. Families tell us they like that it creates a timeless memory and captures the nostalgia of a horse drawn carriage.
It has driven to Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Ohio for funerals and participated in Harley Davidson’s 105th Anniversary celebration. It also accompanies veterans in various Milwaukee parades to honor those who died while serving our country.
