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.
Evel Knievel (/??i??v??l k????ni??v??l/; October 17, 1938 ??? November 30, 2007), born Robert Craig Knievel, was an American daredevil, painter, entertainer, and international icon. In his career he attempted over 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps between 1965 and 1980, and in 1974, a failed jump across Snake River Canyon in the Skycycle X-2, a steam-powered rocket. The over 433 broken bones he suffered during his career earned him an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the survivor of "most bones broken in a lifetime". Knievel died of pulmonary disease in Clearwater, Florida, aged 69. According to the British paper The Times writing his obituary, Knievel was one of the greatest American icons of the 1970s. Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999.


Born in Butte, Montana in 1938, Bobby Knievel was the first of two children born to Robert E. and Ann Keough "Zippy" Knievel. His surname is of German origin; his great-great-grandparents on his father's side emigrated to the United States from Germany. Robert and Ann divorced in 1940, after the birth of their second child, Nicolas, known as Nic. Both parents decided to leave Butte. Bobby and Nic were raised by paternal grandparents, Ignatius and Emma Knievel. At the age of eight, Bobby attended a Joie Chitwood Auto Daredevil Show, to which he gave credit for his later career choice to become a motorcycle daredevil.p. 38
Knievel ended high school after his sophomore year and got a job in the copper mines with the Anaconda Mining Company as a diamond drill operator. However, he preferred motorbiking to all this "unimportant stuff", as he put it. He was then promoted to surface duty where he drove a large earth mover. Knievel was fired when he made the earth mover do a motorcycle-type wheelie and drove it into Butte's main power line. The incident left the city without electricity for several hours. Without work, Knievel began to find himself in more and more trouble around Butte
