Evel Knievel was a hero to me as a kid. Who wouldn’t admire a guy who drinks heavily, jumps a Harley Davidson Bike and beats people up with a baseball bat?
That behavior actually killed his line of toys with “IDEAL” and that was a sad day. The Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle was certainly in about every guy’s top ten best gifts as a kid. They milked it toward the end with Daring Debbie and Robbie and the bikes kept getting lamer and lamer, but the original up to the 4th series was awesome!
