Britain's first Full Length Hearse for Trike Enthusiasts
Trike Hearse History
In 2002 Britain’s first motorcycle hearse was launched. Over 16 years since the high performance motorcycle and sidecar hearse has become more and more popular. Sadly, trike enthusiasts were been left behind with trailers.
What was desperately needed was a hearse that resolved the bouncing, skipping and swaying problems encountered by light weight trailers.
Works to address this began in 2005 with the purchase of a second hand automobile hearse. But, the UK’s first full length vehicle for trike enthusiasts wasn’t completed until 2011 and it wasn't until 2018 that it reached it's present standards. Our hearse has the world’s longest stainless wreath rail, a blower to keep moisture down, a new beefed up VW engine, improved geometry for lanes and brand new brakes. Yes, it stops, dead!
The main problems encountered by light weight trailers are rough surfaces and speed bumps. Over these flowers are often destroyed this is upsetting for the following family and mourners. Our full length vehicle addresses this, it is stable, has good ground clearance, doesn’t jump, kick out or skip around.
Our amazing full length hearse is a true one off. A unique statement about the loved one it carries.
The deck is especially reinforced for large passengers.
We provide surrounding clear glass and our driver sits below the glass line, so the coffin view is unobstructed. For the interior we incorporate polished stainless steel to reflect the light.
Our lighting is lovely for dark evenings and early mornings.
Up above the coffin we boast a lovely upholstered leather ceiling.
