The Evel Knievel Museum

At the request of EK fans worldwide we proudly present the Evel Knievel Archive Collection👇🏻

tinyurl.com/EvelKnievelCane

“When the journey of Evel Archaeology began and the road to the museum was being paved, so many people asked where they could find quality reproductions of Evel’s most iconic items, such as a cane, his jewelry or a hand-painted helmet. This new Collection provides the answer in a premium-quality yet affordable way.”

Lathan Mckay

The museum-quality collection debuts with the exceptional “Wheelie Cane.” It is handcrafted in gold-dipped pewter to mirror the authentic prohibition-era brandy-smuggling cane Evel used. Better still, it is sourced from the same maker that fabricated Evel’s original liquid cavity cane. Each cane top features Swarovski crystals set by hand and the opportunity for personalization. Also included in each cane, is the famous internal hidden glass flasks. The initial production run is limited to just 100 numbered pieces.

This exclusive collectible will soon be joined by select reproduction jewelry cast from Evel’s original molds, hand painted helmets, apparel, leathers and even motorcycles.

Damn, just missed it! Was there yesterday!

Curtis Beck

All the rare stuff is finding it's way there now. Very cool.

That is the trike that Evel rode into the Sonny and Cher Show.

I use to talk with Bob all the time when I lived in Largo Fl. We would sit at the bar and I always talked to him like a regular guy. I think that's why he liked me.

Ok, Ok, we're on our way back to see...

Be there at 10 am today

Love that

Jimmie Whitten

YOU CAN'T LOOK AWAY. AND HE WOULDN'T WANT YOU TO.

It doesn’t matter how many times you watch him jump, it’s always a hair-raising experience. And nothing showed his preference for showmanship over sanity like his attempt at Caesars Palace. That’s the fearless spirit we’ve rekindled for a whole new generation with the Evel Knievel Thrill Show Museum.
