Evel Knievel Bike

Yes I've had several inquiries from Evel about using my bike to do his 200 foot jump but I told him I didn't want him to scratch the paint.

I referred him to the Rat Bike Grande and he felt more at home with that.

Can you imagine this old fart trying to do this at age 63 with a liver transplant. He should certainly be in the Darwin Awards Hall of Fame.

He is one mean S.O.B. though. I was doing some consulting work at 20th Century Fox the day he came on the lot and took a baseball bat to a writer who had been writing some bad shit about him. He broke the guys arm and consequently landed him in jail over that one.

Maybe Simon should take up a collection among the Mopedarmy members to pay Evel to put a Mopedarmy sticker on his jump bike and make him an Honorary member of the Army.

Oh bien, sa vie

Jumping bikes at 63 ain't nothing compared to what this guy did at 77.

but you have to give Evel credit, he said he wants a "permanant vacation" after this jump...he may get it.
