The original dare devil would have been 75 years old on Thursday.

Knievel holds the Guinness World Record holder for having the "most bones broken in a lifetime". Evel Knievel made his living riding his motorcycle off of sketchy jumps taking flight over stacks of cars, buses, and semi trucks and even blasting off in a rocket trying to cross the Snake River Canyon. He passed away in 2007.

His performance was not always graceful, but he was a true American f**king badass. Happy Birthday, Evel Knievel.
