For all of you youngsters out there who don’t know how bad ass Evel Knievel back in the day, here’s the simplest description for you to understand. He was the LeBron James of stunt cycling, not only being the best at what he did, but also taking the biggest risks without any regard to his life.

While you may never be able to capture that same daredevil attitude, you could at least try, as Knievel’s customized, All-American Stratocycle is up for grabs on the auction site Ebay.

A 1976 Harley-Davidson XLCH Sportster 1000, the Stratocycle was the bike Knievel rode during his 1977 film, Viva Knievel, and features a red, white and blue paint job on the side and a bald eagle running from the side to the front of it.

Originally purchased for just $500, the seller has restored it and is offering it up to whomever wants to shell out a cool $200,000 starting bid for it.

That’s a small price to pay to instantly become the baddest mother fucker wherever you go, so it might be worth taking a mortgage out to make sure it’s all yours.
