Evel Knievel's X-1 Under Construction
At Don's Shop

Evel contracted with Don to build the “Skycycle.” There was supposed to be a rocket designer but after waiting over a year and drawings did not show up, Evel had Don go ahead on his own. Don did his own design and built the frame, employee Jerry Weeks did most of the aluminum work. The X1 was primarily for promotional purposes, not to be flown. To be sure we kept Evel alive it was fired unmanned into the Snake River on a test run.
