That reminded of a song about Evel from a Boston band called The Neighborhoods. It kicks ass if you like 80's style hard rock.

I heard this and a small part of my childhood died.I'm only 23 so i missed the highlights of his carear but still looked up to him as my idol. Because of him I wanted to be a daredevil growing up. And I mean up until my freshman year of highschool then I wanted to be a stunt man. I then abonded those dreams. Its kind of wierd having your childhood hero die. Strange feeling.

Evel did have a unique, very 70sish shtick that will probably never be repeated in the same way.

But doesn't he have a son into similar stunts?

I remember having two of these when I was a kid in the 70's. You could pose Evel however you wanted on the handlebars or footpegs, and then insert the ripcord, yank on it and away he went doin wheelies or crashing in to crap.

Awesome toy. Mine was taken away when it got stuck in my sisters hair.
