Daredevil Evel Knievel's iconic star-spangled jumpsuit in which he attempted many death-defying stunts is tipped to sell for more than £60,000.<br />
<br />
Between 1965 and 1977, Knievel attempted 175 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps and an unsuccessful crossing of the Snake River Canyon in Idaho in a steam-powered rocket. <br />
<br />
Now, 10 years after Knievel's death, his family have decided to put some of his most iconic items up for auction.<br />
<br />
The jumpsuit Knievel wore in 1972 and 1973 is valued at £63,000 while his famous diamond-studded walking stick is tipped to sell for £13,500.
