Naked Tuesday

Evel in Vancouver

When Evel jumped in Vancouver
My Dad really dropped the ball on this one! I wasn't there!
Seems like the promoters had a hard time with the proper Evel Knievel spelling.
Note a very young Steve Baker cleaning up in the pre-jump races.

American Eagle

Evel used the American Eagle to jump between the years 1969 - 1970.
They paid Evel to use their motorcycles.
They were re-badged Laverdas.
Known as "The Deathtrap", they were 500 plus pounds
 and Evel crashed 50% of the time using them!
