Evel Knievel Children's Chopper

This is the limited-edition children's replica of the street cruiser ridden by American motorcycle daredevil Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel.Knievel, who set the world record by jumping over 19 cars, preferred riding his chopper when not performing stunts. Approved and certified for accuracy by Knievel's son Kelly, the cycle's 12-volt motor tops out at a conservative 4 mph, ideal for a child's leisurely spin around the block. A twist of the throttle propels the chopper; releasing the throttle disengages the motor, bringing the cycle to a stop. A switch on the chassis changes direction from forward to reverse. The chopper features a low-slung seat, high handlebars, extended front fork, and chrome-finish trim. Equipped with a working headlight and training wheels, the chopper is decorated with Knievel's iconic patriotic detailing. Includes a numbered certificate of authenticity. It operates for two hours on a 10-hour charge from the included AC charger. (Age range is approximate and will depend on child's weight, height, skill level.)
