I loved Evel Kneivel all through childhood, anything on TV about him I'd be there watching it. Sat through some weak ass movies because of that obsession and I still own a few of those on DVD today. I had the toys..the windup motorcycle you could launch over stuff, the Snake River Canyon rocket which was pretty lame. The motorcycle actually worked and you could make up some nasty stunts and fly Evel into a world of hurt just like he did to himself in real life. I can't imagine jumping an XR750 like he did. A motocross bike with suspension that really works is one thing but a heavy Harley Flat tracker is another. RIP Evel
