Storyline

Motorcycle mechanic C.C. Ryder joins "The Heads," an outlaw biker gang. Fellow gang members menace fashion journalist Ann when her limo breaks down in the desert, but C.C. comes to her rescue.

When C.C. leaves with his cut of the purse, the bikers kidnap Ann, and C.C. races Moon to win her freedom. Written by Sister Grimm <srgrimm@teleport.com>

Trivia

The biker gang name "Heads" is a reference to drug use, such as "drug-head", "hop-head". It was a common term in the late sixties / early seventies. In many high schools it was commonly used as a reference to the long-haired clique (as in "straights", "socials", "jocks" and "heads".) See more »

Goofs

In a scene where C.C. kicks starts his dirt bike you hear the engine rev-up but his hand never moves the throttle. See more »

User Reviews

William Smith shines as the "bad guy."
19 November 2002 | by jeffgemlSee all my reviews

While Joe Namath was likeable in his role, William Smith, who made a living mostly playing "bad guys" in many B pictures, gave the best performance in this movie. Smith looked like a biker, unlike Namath. He was nasty, grizzled, and mean. Just what you would expect from a "Hells Angel." With an R rating it would have been nice to see a little more skin (especially on a young Ann Margret) but the movie is worth seeing anyway.
