Book Description

19 May 2014
First published in 1968, The Bikeriders explores firsthand the stories and characters of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. The journal-size title features original black-and-white photographs and transcribed interviews made from 1963 to 1967, when Danny Lyon was a member of the Outlaws gang. Authentic, personal, and uncompromising, Lyons depiction of individuals on the outskirts of society offers a gritty yet humanistic view that subverts the commercialized image of Americana. Akin to the documentary style of 1960s-era New Journalism, made famous by writers such as Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, and Tom Wolfe, Lyons work, like theirs, demonstrates humanitarian interests, advocacy, and saturation reporting. The importance of his work and our interest in the subject is reinforced by Lyons immersion in his subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 17 Sep 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great if not particularly big or expensive book. If you're a fan of late 60's Biker chic then this is a good book for you. Think of it as a visual compliment to Hunter S Thompson’s Hells Angels, although this doesn’t actually feature any HA. Wonderful photography and some nice period interviews at the back of the book which I wasn’t expecting.

This book is limited but what is here is a fascinating insight into 60's biker culture in the 'States. Excellent photography (which was my prime reason for buying) and some snippets of the biker's mind-set back in the day. Worthwhile but could have been expanded to great effect.

Excellent view of 60s bike riders. There are plenty of photgraphs which perfectly sum up the period which along with eye witness testimony really bring the era to life.

I enjoyed this book but the plates are not that large. I'd have liked more photos and more full pagers.
