Evel RIP

Evel Knievel RIP. I’ve seen him to do the Snake River jump, seen him do some Las Vegas jumping over cars stunt where he wiped out at the end, he’s a modern stunt man hero. Although in his later years he became a small figure and almost out of people’s memories, in some ways, the BMX’ers put him in hero status. Somehow the crusty Neil Young got the godfather of grunge status and Evel got the OG X Games status. From Vintage BMX, here’s an image of the bike. The site says something about 2007, but I think this bike came out in 1999.
