Check out this beautiful short film by Andrew Watson.

“The American Eagle Flies Again” tells the story of Louis “Rocket” Re, a motorcycle daredevil from Long Island, NY.  After a lifelong obsession with Evel Knievel, Louis followed his dreams and became the only personal in the world currently jumping a stock 1970 American Eagle Laverda (the same model Evel Jumped).  Filmmaker Andrew Watson (who also directed the short film Liberty Vintage – https://vimeo.com/20789680) captures Louis story in this beautiful short 3 minute video.
