Do y'all remember as a child sitting around the t.v. watching those specials where Evel was about to attempt some kind of daring feat? Seems like he failed at most of them!:(

I would have never guessed.... Having watched the Caesar Palace crash about 100 times in slow motion...

Hey does anyone remember the film around '74 about the life of Evil Knievel? It was a pretty good flick...

Wow, do now <--that one?
and what a 70s cast:
  • Evel Knievel
  • Gene Kelly
  • Lauren Hutton
  • Red Buttons
  • Leslie Nielsen
  • Frank Gifford
  • Dabney Coleman
  • Marjoe Gortner

What a plot.

I had the Evel Knievel bicycle! It was red, white, and blue- and even had a plastic "gas tank"! He was the man!:peace:

I had an "easy rider" helmet with my Honda mini-trail 70, but it was an American flag and reminded me of Evil Knievel. He truly was an Amercian Icon. Rest in Peace In Mid Air.......
