Storyline

Mike (Tom Stern), an ex-motorcycle club president from the baddest gang in Riverside, California, returns home a hero after serving in Vietnam. Unable to find his former gang there, he follows a lead and finds Smiley (Ted Markland) and the rest in Bakersfield, California hole up at Ginger's (Arlene Martel) house. Under the watchful eye of Sheriff Bingham (Jack Starrett), who had an "understanding" with the previous president, Mike finds himself up against crooked cops under Bingham's watch. In defiance, he uses his war-hero experience to organize a new, united super outlaw gang. When one member beaten up and killed by police, an all-out cop vs. biker war results.

Quotes

Mike: Well, uh, I suppose your other leaders made you a lot of nutty promises. Yeah, like a beer in every hand, or uh, some pot for every cot, well I'm not gonna make you any promises. I am gonna lay some jazz on your mind boy. I'm gonna put some things down about the wild things I have in store for this club.

The Usual
25 February 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Mike (Tom Stern), a biker, returns to California after serving in Vietnam. He uses his war-hero experience to organize a new, united super outlaw gang. When one member is shot by police because he killed a girl at a pot orgy, an all-out cop versus biker war results.

I have no idea why there existed a period in time where all you had to do was throw bikers, hippies and cops in a film and it just wrote itself. This idea spawned some good films (notably "Easy Rider") and plenty of bad ones. And it seems like many of the bad ones were brought to life by American International Pictures.

This is no exception, and unfortunately they did not even manage to cast a single big star. Without the name talent or crew, this is a largely forgettable film from a largely forgettable genre. The most notable name is Von Dutch who designed the titles -- decades before the brand became famous.
