Since the 1950s, the leather-clad motorcyclist has been the most potent image of the archetypal bad boy, popularized by Hollywood stars such as Marlon Brando and James Dean. Now this painstakingly detailed chronicle of biker culture delves into the early town-sieges of America's mid-West in the 1940s, through to the British Mod and Rocker coastal clashes of the 1960s, the Easy Riders of the 1970s and the Street Fighters of the 21st century, as well as investigating the many misconceptions surrounding the most feared of subcultures.
Gary Charles is a biker who has been at the very heart of this scene since he was a child. Renowned as a global expert in his field, he has unparalleled knowledge of the history and intricacies of the Biker universe. In addition, his archive of photographs spanning decades of lifestyle biker events provides a truly extraordinary visual accompaniment to this compelling and vivid documentary.
