Auction Block: Evel Knievel’s 1970 Triumph T100c

Nov 15, 2017

Category: Rides

We’ve all seen the footage. Grainy video of Robert Craig “Bob” Knievel Jr. – otherwise known as “Evel Knievel” – attempting ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps, cross canyon attempts, even obstacle clearances. This included his New Year’s Eve jumping of the Caesars Palace fountains in 1967, resulting in a heinous crash, yet propelling him into fame for years to come.

Now, his iconic 1970 Triumph T100c motorcycle is up for auction – formerly on display at Caesar’s Palace believe it or not – and is still in working order despite the use and abuse it must have endured at the hands of Knievel. It houses a 500cc parallel twin engine, air-cooled overhead valves with a single carburetor and, of course, is custom painted with Knievel’s name and signature red, white, and blue color palette along with old glory stars and stripes. It’s also slated to be delivered with a certificate of authenticity from Caesar’s Palace and will no doubt look mighty patriotic either in the driveway or the home.

Purchase: $25,000+
