Not a bad book for someone looking up basic history of certain clubs. Quite a few clubs that have gone by the by too.

Great book for anyone interested in motorcycle clubs and their histories. No groundbreaking myth busting or horror stories, just a good reference book. Worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars A prized addition and annoying 9 Dec 2011
By Richie Jingles - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
On the surface, this a beautiful, oversized book which is exactly as advertised-- an encyclopedic listing of outlaw motorcycle clubs worldwide. Each club has a little listing containing SOME information. Some have a box containing more info-- date, place of origin, locations, club colors (actual colors-- white, blue gold,etc.) and description of the club patch... and there SOME very nice photographs of SOME patches. Which brings me to my major beef-- NOT ENOUGH! It would have been very nice if at least most of the clubs had their patches pictured. Considering how many clubs have websites and E-mail addresses, this does'nt seem to be too big an expectation... What IS here is very nice---some beautiful photography and some essays by clubbers.. BUT---another beef, there are some inaccuracies and incompletes (nit picking? perhaps.)
1)FILTHY FEW is sub group within the Hells Angels MC ONLY, and a club that stole the name in New Zealand. It is NOT a "common idiom throughout the motorcycle culture".
2)The NUGGETS MC has not flown the described patch of "a beer drinking rabbit on a motorcycle" since it's very early days. Since the late 60's, they've flown their current patch--- a gold nugget with a motorcycle inside. They rode full dressers back then and morphed into choppers--an interesting fact not mentioned.
3)The Mongrel Mob of NZ should not have been included--- they wear cuts with patches but they DON'T RIDE.
4)The Gypsy Jokers is listed as a"classic club" and it is--- their patch is listed as a grinning skull... gee whiz, that's the Australian club who just appropriated the name and made up their own patch. The Aussies have since made a connection to the originals and adopted the real top and bottom rockers but kept the skull center patch. The REAL Gypsy Joker patch was and is a walking jester--- that's a real boner on the author's part. An annoying incomplete--"Curious about that demonic critter on the Pagan's patch?" sez the back cover and the blurb on Amazon--- Yeah, it's the norse fire demon Surtur or dark Surt, BUT they DON"t say that it's a direct lift from a 1963 issue of Marvel comic's JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY in a TALES OF ASGARD story drawn by one of the greatest comic book artists of the 20th century- JACK KIRBY. Despite these criticisms, it's still a cool book...
One really funny feature is a reprint of a 1960's cop manuel on outlaw bikers--- so THAT'S where they got the idea that I had a shotgun rigged up in my handlebars!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected. 22 Oct 2012
By BEH - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title of this book is a bit misleading. When I saw that it is an Encyclopedia, I assumed that there would be information about the various OMC's; history, notable members, significant events about criminal involvement, etc.
The book is merely an identification of OMC colors or patches with very little information about the clubs. My bad for making that assumption, but the book would be more fairly referred to as a OMC colors or patch picture book. I wanted the book for more of a historical purpose, something to show the evolution of the clubs, their conflicts, alliances and the dynamics of their criminal involvement. I should have done a little more research before I bought the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Title suggest much more than really is 27 Dec 2011
By Lenin - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's not One Percenter Encyclopedia but, in best case, List of Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs. Esch club has description, shorter or longer. There is also a police manual to bikers from the 70's and a short bibliography, with a short book descriptions, on subject
List of clubs is incomplete. For example there are no Satan's Angels, Rebels(from Canada), Stray Satans, Straight Satans etc.

But one percent bikerdom there is not only list of clubs.

I've expected an explanation of terms connected with one-percenters like "mama", "old lady", "run", "originals" etc,
list of names(like Sonny Barger, Mom Boucher, Walter Stadnick to name the few) of people connected with biker scene(also names like Christine Deese), events like Altamont Concert, Milperra Massacre, Shedden Massacre, Lennoxville Massacre. Also biker books(with much detailed descriptions than in above mentioned book review) and evemtually biker movies would have been welcomed too.

Alas, it looks that I've expected too much. So only 3 stars.

Pretty much, this is a repository of information that was collected from open sources. I think that a lot of the information was Wikipedia level accuracy.
