This is a pretty complete view of the motorcycle scene in England up until 1968. If you've seen the movie "Quadraphenia" (Spelled wrong,no doubt), then you have a pretty good idea of the photos and text of this book, from the "Rockers" side anyway. The Rockers were the Brit boys who rode real motorcycles ( British, of course) as opposed to the Scooterists who rode Italian Vespas and Lambrettas. I ordered this book knowing only that the author had been an officer in the Hells Angels MC, England. I was hoping for more information about the transformation from the Rockers to the officially chartered HAMC of today. Alas, none was forthcoming and that was the disappointment. I already knew that various biker groups in England had banded together and formed imitation and unauthorized Hells Angels clubs, wearing crude copies of the real HA patch. They rode Triumphs, BSAs, Nortons and even some Honda 750s. They were WAY behind the real California originals on every level. The granting of real HAMC charters from California in 1969 was only the beginning of the creation of the real thing in England and the rest of the UK.
THAT's what I'd hoped to learn more about. but given the Angel's penchant for minding their own business, I should not have been surprised.
