I'm thinking 1974. Just a guess.

I vaguely remember it. Somebody at work brought it up and I had to see if I could find the intro. You're correct, SLO-KLR: info on YouTube listed it as 1974. Obviously capitalizing on the Even Knievel craze.

Once I saw the entro I remembered seeing it but don't remember much about the show. I don't think it lasted but a season or two.

Here's a partial episode exploring the psychological impacts of a crash and what is probably the first suggestion of putting JATO packs on a motorcycle so Devlin can "fly like a homesick angel."

Mickey Dolenz of the "Monkees" provides the voice of Tod Devlin, the mechanic.

I remember seeing the add or intro for it. I was probably in 5th or 6th grade but we didn't have cable TV then so it would have been at a friends house. Didn't get non-network TV until my wife insisted on getting ESPN so she could see more football (about 2000).
