Joerg Grossmann said Friday that his prototype hearse for die-hard bikers who want to ride until the very end – a special sidecar fitted to his motorcycle – made its first funeral run last month.
The original's a Kawasaki but the 48-year-old from near Frankfurt says 10 of his patented Harley hearses, each costing about euro60,000 ($78,000), are currently being assembled and will be ready later this year.
He's counting on 1,000 bookings per year in Germany alone at euro1,200 ($1,600) each, compared to euro200 for a normal hearse, and already has a contract in Switzerland and is in talks elsewhere.
He says people are really excited about the Harley hearse: "It's something special."
