Evel Knievel was a complicated guy who lead an interesting life. Love him or hate him, there is no denying that he is an American Icon who's legend will live forever. Regardless of who he was and who he portrayed himself to be, the man had huge balls!
He was a marginally talented motorcycle rider who knew full well that he would come up short on many of his jumps, yet he still climbed aboard his Harley XR750 and went for it. You have to admire his bravery and willingness to sacrifice himself for the entertainment of those who came to see him jump.
After every test shot had failed, he still climbed into the one remaining steam powered shit box called The X2 Skycycle and allowed himself to be shot into the Snake River Canyon. He himself said that he knew he was a dead man and yet he still went for it. It was probably one of the bravest things that any man has ever done and it cemented his reputation as the greatest daredevil that has ever lived.
No matter how you feel about him, you have to respect his commitment and this new line of Knievel American Classic T-Shirts is the perfect way to pay tribute to the bravest man to ever throw a leg over a motorcycle.
