Evel Hero USA TodayEvel Hero USA Today

RED BLOOD. WHITE SUIT. AND BLUE SKY.

For daredevils and dreamers of all ages, come rediscover the spectacle of the death-defying Evel Knievel show, now open and flying sky-high in Topeka, Kansas. Witness the incredible collection of the physics-defying bikes that launched the legend. See his iconic 1974 Mack Truck & Trailer "Big Red." Examine the star-spangled helmets (battered, and beaten and beautiful) that undoubtedly saved Evel’s uninsurable life more than once. Listen to the eye-widening, imagination-sparking, and the doesn’t-seem-possible stories that defined an American icon.

The Evel Knievel Museum

Rest Easy Timothy Perior-

Tim was a bartender at Marty's Bar in Orange County in 1965, thats where he met Evel.

Time had credit, Evel didn't and it was Tim's credit that bought the ramp hauling truck, the two red GMC pickups and the Norton motorcycles for the daredevil show. Tim designed and painted th EKMDD logo on the trucks and made all the press photos for the show. Tim was a 50% partner with Evel, the Motorcycle Daredevils group was formed in December 1965. They split up when Evel went to Ascot in March 1967.

My last correspondence with Tim was June 9th as we had planned an interview & visit at his home in Porter Ranch this summer. Many of his historical images are on display at the museum.

The most annoying video I’ve seen in a while.

My grandson and I did the jump last Tuesday, enjoyed it immensely. All he could say to this video was "oh my gosh."

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.
