When it's time to say goodbye to a biker, not just any cremation urn will do.

Motorcycle Urn Options
You have a variety of options available when it comes to choosing a motorcycle urn, including traditional vases, sculptural urns, cubes and boxes, and even urns that incorporate motorcycle parts. Which urn you choose depends on your personal preference and what you think your departed loved one would like.
Perhaps the most traditional of urns, a vase motorcycle urn is typically made of brass and includes an image of a motorcycle or biker on the side. In most cases, the name of the deceased, dates, and a brief message can be added. These urns usually open at the top and are sealed with a threaded lid.
Sculptural motorcycle urns are highly detailed and often feature a figure of a motorcycle on top. They are usually made of cold cast resin, which can be given the appearance of bronze without the weight or expense. You may also find this type of urn in the shape of a motorcycle tank. An engraved plaque can typically be attached to the side of the urn.
Boxes and Cubes
A very popular options, motorcycle urns in the shape of boxes or cubes may be made of wood or metal. Wooden boxes will often include an image on one side, showing the silhouette of a biker, a motorcycle engine, or a similar picture. Cube urns are often made of bronze or stainless steel, and they may include the image of a motorcycle along with custom engraving.
For a special piece that reflects the uniqueness of your loved one, consider a cremation urn made from real motorcycle cylinders mounted on a solid base. Made by bikers for bikers, these urns include a customizable nameplate attached to the base.
Choosing the Right Urn
Once you've selected an urn style, make sure that it is available in the size that you need. A good rule of thumb is that for each pound of weight that the deceased weighed before cremation, you'll need 1 cubic inch of volume in the urn. If your loved one weighed 200 pounds, for example, you'll need a motorcycle urn that holds at least 200 cubic inches. If you're only keeping a portion of the ashes, there are many keepsake and sharing urns available.
