He said "Evel Kneivel was my boyhood hero, so I wanted to do a bike like his for a while. I'm 57 and still act like a kid. The donor bike was in very good original condition. The standard SXR tail section had to be widened ¾" to fit the pre-Evo frame. Phil did this at no additional charge and I will promise you can't see where it was cut and re-shaped. He is truly the guru of glass".
"The bike was drawing a crowd while still perched on the lift. I spent too much money on the custom-fabbed exhaust but, once started, no turning back. Meanwhile, I was especially pleased with Phil's red/white/blue seat stitching. And a sign shop made the Evel graphics package. I love it, but am gonna let someone else do the jumping. Enjoy!"
