Default Vintage photos of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club

From 1963 to 1967, American photographer Danny Lyon, lived with the Chicago chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. He published a book in 1968 called The Bikeriders based on the material he gathered during those four years. It is currently out of print, but I've found 30 photos which you can enjoy now...

Boy those were the days too. Remember when the Dayton OutLaws club house was on Vance Road here in Dayton. They used to have parties almost every weekend. They were selling 16 once bottle of beer for 50 cents each. My oldest brother used to ride with the Dayton Saintans back then. One weeks they would party and the next week they would fight each other. Both clubs are still around but nothing like they were back then.

Wow, too many memories. Milwaukee and Sheboygan chapters
I can remember county sheriff departments lined up in squad cars at county lines to 'escort' a chapter through their county!

Ironically a small chapter still exists in Green Bay. Nothing like the old members from the 60-70's.

Here is an 81 classic. No disrespect meant, but the guy on the bike looks like Jax, The chick on back looks like Tara, and Gemma is sitting on the ground. Anyway it is a cool pic.

I remember this ^^^ picture. It was in spread about the Angels, in a Look or Post magazine when I was in High School. But what I noticed was Funny Sunny, an Angel, on the back of an Outlaw's bike. Seems odd since they're on opposite sides now...aren't they?

A more simple time right there. Probably weren't the nicest guys, but great scoots and you can't argue with living free.

I noticed that pic too. Not exactly something you see every day…a patched 81 member on the back of a motorcycle with a patched Outlaw member, looking like they're having a great time together. A different era, indeed.
