So glad to know you for so many years and glad too to share our admiration for Evel and Hot Wheels

That was very thoughtful Cam. I am thankful to have become your friend.

I've known you for ... Years and never heard your voice before... 😊

Love!

Cool. I’ll be in Maui next month.

There’s a new Shark Exhibit at the Topeka Zoo just down the street from the museum! Now, all we can think about is Evel’s Shark Jump in 1977 at the Chicago International Amphitheater. He may have crashed during the practice run, but it’s still fun to talk about! Anyone there?

A day of Evel + Sharks sounds like a great day! Let us help you plan your trip to Topeka! #onemorething to do in #topcity

The bike that was used in jump.

I still remember the tv special talking about canceling the jump.

That's really cool but does anyone remember when The Fonz jumped the shark?? Sorry....couldn't resist....I don't remember Evel's shark jump attempt...too bad it did not happen.

I think a camera operator was injured and lost an eye, no pun intended.

Wasn’t that his last attempt at a jump?

I was there

I filmed him jumping 10 Kenworth trucks at the KS State Fair when I was in college. It's a prized possession and great memory.

My grandfather worked at Caesars back than I had a autograph pic of that

Dude! Happy Birthday. I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. Remember the happy memories with him and keep him in your heart. Dude, we need to get together. Call or text me.

Has anyone been able to find that Triumph? Seems I’ve seen a single photo of it (post Caesars crash)) but no record of its whereabouts since.

I can witness that

I remember watching when I was a kid. To us Evel was a real life superhero!

A lot of people say he didn’t make the jump over the fountains. Well, he did! He just didn’t have the best of landings! 😁 Nonetheless, Evel is forever the King of Bad-asses! 👍

I sat with The Man for 6 hours when I was about 10 and looking back now, we were a lot alike!!

Linda Evans was the one that filmed at I took the pictures

From what I've seen in home movies even if he had landed the jump he wasn't out of trouble. It wasn't that far from the ramp to Flamingo Blvd and it looked like there was a small opening in a wall for him to go through and into some hay bales. He looked to be going about 80-85 MPH on landing and would have been relying on crappy 1960s drum brakes! Just balls of steel!

Just a small tidbit I shot while there.

I watched it live. He took one hell of a fall!

Yes I remember that jump

I have him to thank for many broken bones and multiple injuries. But most of all I thank him for instilling the drive to fight and to get back up when getting knocked down. He was as close as any one can get to being a real superhero. RIP Evel for life!

👍😍🇺🇸😎

Turn up your sound...sorry it is not louder...

Is the museum interested in this motorcycle in Branson, Missouri?

Signed by Evel under the seat... Only 50 miles on the V-Rod...

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.
