No, *really.*

I know. I saw the movie. George Hamilton and Evel looked a lot alike.

You are right tbzep, there were four different models. The Klingberg Fling Thing, the Klingberg Rocket Wing, the Klingberg Sport Wing, and the Klingberg Wing.

Would anyone know where I could get plans for the Rocket wing?

I offer the following date -- September 8, 1974 -- and two words to put it all into perspective.


"Evel Knievel."

Maybe I should delve back into EX and build a few M3000 motors for strap-on boosters!
