Evel Knievel Net Worth
Evel Knievel Net Worth: Evel Knievel was an American daredevil motorcyclist, painter and entertainer who had a net worth of $3 million. Evel Knievel (October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007) established himself as a true international icon with his motorcycle reckless jumps in the 1970s. Donning his signature jumpsuit in the national red, white and blue, Knievel would race his motorcycle across rough steep areas and over daring obstacles. He attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps in his career, including a jump over a row of 13 double-decker buses at London's Wembley Stadium (in 1975), and another one over the fountains in front of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas (in 1968). However, not all of his attempts were successful. It was in 1974 that he failed to complete his jump across Snake River Canyon in the Skycycle X-2, a steam-powered rocket. Such fails and crash-landings came along with injures and some broken bones. Actually, Evel Knievel is the survivor of "most bones broken in a lifetime" with an incredible number of over 433 broken bones he had suffered during his career, which also secured him entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. Thanks to his prolific death-defying career, Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999. The world lost this one-of-a-kind daredevil in 2007 when he lost the battle against pulmonary disease in Clearwater, Florida.
