Daredevil Evel Knieval’s son gives talk
A MEMORABILIA tour of the world’s coolest dare devil will kick-off at a famous bikers’ cafe next week.
Legendary motorbike stuntman Evel Knieval, known as much for his wild lifestyle as his breathtaking stunts, will be the subject of a talk by his oldest son, Kelly, at the Ace Caf�, in North Circular Road, Stonebridge, on Friday, December 3, before the tour starts the next day.
Kelly will give a private insight into the man’s life and what it was like to be his son.
Evel famously nearly killed himself attempting to jump 13 London buses at Wembley stadium in May, 1975, on his Harley Davidson.
He declared at the time he would never jump again but was soon in the seat again wowing crowds.
Fans will have the chance to try on and be pictured in Evel’s white leathers that still carry the scuff marks from his many crashes.
The American, who died in 2007, still holds the world record for having the most broken bones – an astonishing 35 and spent 36 months in hospital recovering.
