Hells Angels Ride the Big Apple

By the 1960's, the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club had spread to the East Coast of the US. These photos were taken in New York, probably in the early 70's, and show that the chopper scene was in full swing. Over twenty photos of choppers and 1%er's.

Great photos

I'm loving the nostalgia, even though I might not even have been born when they were taken (I suppose it depends on when in the 60s) :smile

By my calculations you would have been able to enjoy your first legal pint when I was born!

Time is a funny thing. I was born 20 years after the end of the second world war, and for most of my life I felt as if the war was something from a different century. It's only recently that I've realised that the war had been a fairly recent thing by the time I arrived on this earth...

At least you got to experience the swinging sixties - it kinda passed me by in my pram :unsure:

1970 was a significant year for both of us - you joined the RAF and I started school :winkie:

Wouldn't have minded seeing the original Fleetwood Mac though, or even the later group....

Bloody hell Roger

what an amazing photo of Terry with Monty next to him. Recognised him instantly. Monty is still a stalwart of the Plymouth biking scene. Grey hair now but the same mullet and tache. He rides a Tiger 800.


Do you know who the couple on the right are? They look familiar.

Roger

I think his shop was in North Hill in the mid 80's. I used to get bits for my Trident T160 from him.

Just seen Monty's website with that picture on it.

Apologies for the thread hijack PHJ!

Cheers Rog

I actually have The Wild One on DVD but (whispering) I don't have a DVD player :shock: 

I'm thinking about getting one though! Might even go the whole way and get Sky TV :unsure:
