Morticians at a Puerto Rican funeral home chose to display the body of David Morales Colón on his Honda motorcycle rather than in a traditional casket, as shown in the video below.

Colón, 22, was murdered last Thursday in his San Juan neighborhood, Primera Hora reports. For his wake, the Marin Funeral Home dressed the young man in his typical riding clothes, helmet included, on top of his beloved motorcycle.

As Jalopnik put it, "yes, this is real."

This isn't the first time Marin has made headlines for its unusual funerary services, the Associated Press notes. In 2008, the funeral home kept the embalmed body of a 24-year-old man standing throughout a wake that lasted three days.
