This 70s ringer tee celebrates the legendary Evel Knieval, a notorious motorcycle stunt performer in the late 1960s and 1970s. One of his most famed stunts includes the Caesars Palace jump where he botched the landing and ended up hospitalized with a concussion and several fractures.
Despite the mishap (and many other close calls), Kneivel continued performing wild motorcycle stunts like jumping over lines of Greyhound buses or Snake River Canyon in Idaho, which he settled for after the government refused to let him jump the Grand Canyon. In 1999, Evel Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
Wanting to do more with his celebrity, Knieval sought to build up an image for himself. He also wanted to be a good influence for children, so he launched helmet safety and anti-drug campaigns. By cultivating a remarkable image, he was able to get motorcycle endorsements, television features, and even become the subject of several movies.
Tag says extra large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium.
