It looks like a '67 TT model.

A lead-in-the-ass Harley XLCH may not have made it far enough!

In the early 70's I watched him jump a bunch buses at Beeline dragway in Arizona, he was on a Harley at that time

I'd rather have seen Evel attempt to jump 50 Harleys with a cement truck.

6 years old! Isn't that considered child endangerment?

That was my first thought considering that none of my grandchildren (all near that age) could do anything like that; but they couldn't dance and act like Shirley Temple at age 5 either, so everyone's different.

On the other hand, there are very many people in the world who don't think ANYONE should ride motorcycles, because it's too dangerous, and it's just a game, and the thousands killed each year "aren't worth the cost", so motorcycling should be banned. Could be headed that way, with our nanny state and all. So best not to go down that road.

He's ATGATT, he looks pretty coordinated, and kids that age bounce pretty well anyhow, at least mine did when they were swinging on grapevines over 20 foot gullies at that age ...

Not on a 650 Triumph they don't .... That's half the fun, watching Evel fling these old iron sleds hundreds of feet downrange with 3" of suspension travel ....

I watched Richard Hammond ( Top Gear ) interview Evel. To be honest it made the guy look like a bit of plank. Either way, I recon when they screwed his balls on they loctited the threads.


And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth'

An interesting point given recent events.

If you google "Dick Smith's Flying Bus 1983" you can watch a short video clip. In the background you can see the Land Rover that was used to push the bus to get a little more speed.

Currently 6 other non-Brit machines.

Some impressive and some just silly.
