The greatest stuntman who ever lived

To quote Evel Knievel, “I’m a jumping son-of-a-bitch. I’ll jump anything.”
On Dec. 31, 1967 Evel would attempt to jump the fountains at Caesar’s Palace.

The jump and subsequent crash depicted here resulted in Knievel suffering a crushed pelvis and femur, fractures to his hip, wrist and both ankles and a concussion that kept him in a coma for 29 days.
He would attempt to jump 15 Mustangs little more than five months later.
There will never be another like him.
Evel Knievel and his legacy are a sure bet to be included in NW Limited’s line of American Motorcycle tributes.
Truly his heroic feats are History in VogueTM!
