)-- Knievel Custom Cycles, LLC and Hardbikes, LLC announced today that a strategic alliance has been entered into between the two companies. Under this agreement Hardbikes will become the exclusive motorcycle manufacturer for the Knievel Cycles brand. Knievel Custom Cycles, which started operations in 2005 currently produces one-off customs at a facility in Northern New Jersey. Knievel Custom Cycles was originally created by Kaptain Robbie Knievel and a few close friends. Robbie, a motorcycle daredevil who started performing at age 8 presently holds 20 world records and is awaiting induction into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame on August 7, 2007 in Sturgis S.D. In early 2007, Knievel Cycles welcomed the participation of Robbie’s father Evel Knievel who is the original motorcycle daredevil. Evel Knievel has been a household name since the late 1960s and his feats were so famous that four of the 20 most-watched Wide-World of Sports events are his performances with one being the largest draw ever. As a pioneer in the dare devil industry, Evel was enshrined in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.
