Evil Kneivel Stunt cycle

Post by SavageSS-Shawn » Tue Nov 01, 2005 1:22 am

While browsing this forum it made me think about a toy I had when I was a kid, The
Evil Kneivel stunt bike, I cant beleive I actually found some on E-bay.........You would
put the bike in that red thing on the little white gear and hold on to the handle and
crank it up with the white handle and then let it go and it would do wheelies and flips
and stuff, I also had one that was some sort of rocket bike I think, and I let a kid launch
the thing from my driveway and I went to the house across the street to catch it and
when he let it go a car was coming and it got wasted. here are some pics of the bike
though that I found on ebay. Anyone else have one?

My brother (older even than me!) and I each had one, and we would race them down the driveway, down the street, anywhere that was straight, level, and ('cause mom said) outside. But the best was when we played chicken with them :twisted: . Surprisingly, we actually collided quite often, and even more surprisingly, those things were tough! Last time we moved overseas (military :? ), we gave them to the neighbor kids who were younger. Wow, that was a long time ago...

one time I was running with mine in my hand and went to jump up on my bed and somehow rammed the handlebars up my nose, it was one of my first bloody noses :lol:
