Man Risks His Life To Save Bike Containing His Brothers’s Ashes

Monson MA  March 20, 2013:  (excerpted from The Republican)    Billy Fountain told the local newspaper there was no way he was letting his brother's 1992 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy burn up in the fire that broke out near the barn where it was being stored. "Hell or highwater, I was getting the bike out of there," Fountain said.

The reason? Encased inside the handlebars of the turquoise and blue bike were cremated remains of his brother, Harold E. Fountain II, who died in an accident on the bike in Orlando Florida in 2004.  Besides his brother's ashes,  his likeness is painted on the tank and Billy said the bike means everything to him.

"Things like this, it doesn't matter to me as long as I got a place to sleep," Fountain said of the fire – and, as long as his brother's bike was OK. "I had to get that bike," he said, swiping a tear from his cheek.
