2014 - We were granted the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with Orange County Choppers to design and build a custom built black pearl chopper hearse featuring a sidecar with two reproduction 1930s antique funeral lights, one in the front and the other in the back. An Orange County Choppers representative called it one of a kind, the first motorcycle-driven hearse for the company.
2005 - After purchasing our first triked Harley Davidson Motorcycle, we purchased a motorcycle trailer that was not only aerodynamic, but what we felt represented a trailer that was used in a biker's daily life. The motorcycle trailer has gone through many transformations thanks to Spitler Specialty Vehicles of Montoursville, PA. Spitler certainly had the means and knowledge to bring this coach into a reality of ours.
Every part of this unique funeral coach was carefully thought out to give a secure ride and provide the utmost dignity for a biker's service. For example; the large glassed areas give an unhindered and unparalleled view of the casket or cremation urn, of the loved one being honored. The coach lamps and interior rollers are the same used in conventional hearses made today.
Forever Remembered Hearse Company, born from our love of Harley Davidson Motorcycles, was formed after two years of research and development. The debut of our new service was held during a community festival in the Borough of Hellertown, Pennsylvania on August 20th, 2005. Richard, Robert and David Heintzelman are very proud of this introduction into the motorcycle funeral hearse business.
Forever Remembered Hearse Company's trailer service is unique in the fact that, while we offer our service to anyone who requests, the driver is always a licensed funeral director. Our belief is two-folded: to offer a service that is not cost prohibited, but more importantly, to provide a service that gives families a lifetime of memories while celebrating a person's life that truly loved and embraced the open road. We are locally owned and operated, with no corporate limitations.
If you have enjoyed the experience of motorcycling, our desire is to engage a “last ride” that will be more memorable than riding in a Cadillac, Lincoln or a Conversion Motor Coach.
