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.

I had one of these with the hand crank that you used to build up speed before releasing the cycle.

Bah Vista beat me to that pic, so I'll add this one!



As a kid, Evel taught us that if we dreamed it, we could do it. Later, he taught us that he was just F'n crazy, and we'd most likely die if we went his route.

Thanks for bein' my childhood hero Evel, and RIP.

What a shame, RIP Evel.

My sister lives in Tampa and a good friend of hers is/was his neighbor. He said the guy was really cool and fun to talk to.

He was Man among boys. I wish I could find the video but near the end of career he jumps a crapload of busses, crashes hard, breaks his pelvis, then stands up and addresses the crowd with said broken pelvis.

He addressed the crowd with his PELVIS?!

That's hardcore.
