Evel has two similar bikes ...the one above for doing wheelies around the track ... then he gets onto another bike for the actual jumps. (bike below is also the 'wheelie' bike ..pics of the 'Jump' bike on it's own page) According to this it's the "stuntcycle". http://www.hollywood-diecast.com/Evel%20Knievel%20Back.JPG

The bike for wheelie doesn't often have the brake in the front wheel. Rotation of front wheel helps balancing. sometime also have built-in motor Evel's jumping bike has front brake and chain sets right side (XR750), and wheelie bike hasn't front brake and chain is left side. Wheelie bike seems based on 74cu in model (Harley-Davidson FX ?) but it's difficult to ascertain former model. (I want to name the 'Harley-Davidson Stuntcycle' personally...for Evel )

Harley-Davidson Aermacchi 90X... Y manquait quelque chose: le nom du modèle: Harley-Davidson X90 Shortster Par contre, ces Harley n'étaient, que je sache, pas fabriquées aux Etats-Unis, mais en Italie, chez Aermacchi... (en règle générale, toutes les Harley deux-temps, jusqu'à la reprise par Cagiva) Ha ils ne parlent pas de ça dans l'article Wikipedia. Ça concerne beaucoup de modèles ou juste quelques uns ?

Wikipedia, tu sais... Les modèles petite cylindrée de l'ancienne gamme Aermacchi (de l'usine de Varese), donc 90, 125 et 250. Siglés Harley, quand il était de bon ton de démocratiser (le tout de 1972 à 1979, de mémoire)
