Yeah, Knievel’s iconic 1972 jump suit (this was the suit that he first appeared in with the famous ‘V’ line of stars on his chest instead of the previous ‘X’, the white leather and the oversized collar and cuffs plus the zip-in flares) and his diamond-topped, gold-detailed walking cane with secret compartment for carrying liquor (usually Wild Turkey in Knievel’s case) are now on sale.

At the time that we’re posting this article, there’s a bit over 16 days left on the sale and the King of the Stuntmen’s suit is currently sitting at $30,000 (£23,898) with the cane at $17,000 (£13,542).

We’ve put a video below from the USA in 1973 that explains a bit of what Evel had the cane for. It’s worth a watch.
