The battle for Knievel’s estate begins…


Shelly Saltman, the PR guru who was brutally beaten by Evel Knievel with a baseball bat, says he intends to sue the late daredevil’s estate for $100 million.

Saltman, who promoted the infamous Snake River Canyon jump, was attacked by Evel in 1977 after Knievel wasn’t happy with his book.

The Knievel family, understandably, will let their lawyers do the talking.

Saltman’s book, “Evel Knievel on Tour” is now out of print. Copies now fetch between $130 and $250 on the Internet.

He is reportedly considering a second printing.
