The Bikeriders

This book was first published in 1968 and has always been a personal favorite of ours over at Johnson Motors, but has been out of print for 10 years!

The Bikeriders explores firsthand the stories and characters of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. The journal sized title features original black and white photographs and transcribed interviews made from 1963 to 1967, when the author Danny Lyon was a member of the Outlaws gang.

Not only is this an amazing photographic journal of motorcycle gang life during the hedonistic 60s, it's also a great read with the interviews that Lyon did on his reel-to-reel tape recorder.
