Viva Las Vegas Evel Knievel

THIS CLASSIC motorcycle was a joint venture between Evel Knievel and California Motorcycle Company to celebrate his six most famous jumps. This bike commemorates his jump over the fountain at Caesar’s Palace. It was produced in the Gilroy factory in 1999, in which later that year, Indian began production again.

This bike was the first one built in a series meant to be of six, but after a fall-out between the invested parties, no one knows how many were actually produced.

The artwork on one side of the tank is Evel doing the jump at Caesar’s and the other side is him coming off. It has $500 & $1000 dollar notes plus playing cards embedded in the tank, and silver dollars on the saddlebags, EVEL plate and dice lights.

John and Krystal imported the bike to Australia from the USA with only 61 miles on the clock; most of these miles were put on the bike by Evel riding it around the Caesar’s Palace himself. They have framed pictures of Evel on the bike at casino, which is autographed, and along with a Certificate of Authenticity and a picture of Evel signing it that came with the bike.
