Profiles in History, run by Joe Maddalena, is set to auction off Evel Knievel’s stunt worn crash helmet and signature leather jumpsuit in its December 15-16 “Drama, Action, Romance: The Hollywood Auction.”

Being auctioned off is the famous Bell Star full-face motorcycle helmet prominently seen when Evel Knievel attempted to jump 13 single-deck AEC Merlin buses at London’s Wembley Stadium on May 26, 1975. Knievel cleared the buses, but was badly injured when his front wheel bounced on the landing, launching him over his handlebars. Afterward, he said, “I will never, ever, ever, ever jump again. I am through.” The helmet is expected to fetch $60,000-$80,000.
