A controversial Puerto Rican funeral home has embalmed a shooting victim onboard a motorcycle in a hunched over racing position.

David Morales Colón, who was shot last Thursday, was dressed casually wearing a black baseball cap, black sunglasses and a long-sleeved black T-shirt. He was positioned onboard his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600F4 on request from his family, as the motorcycle was a gift from his uncle.

The Marin Funeral Home made news headlines two years ago after it embalmed a man and kept the body standing upright for during a three-day wake.

A video of the wake is available on youtube.
