The story starts one weekend in 1947, at a motorcycle race in Hollister, California. A few members of one club, the no-holds-barred ldquo;Boozefighters,rdquo; got a little juiced up and took their racing to the street. Word of the fracas spread, and soon enoughLifemagazine was on hand to tell the world, with sensational (albeit posed) pictures of the outlaws. And then the ldquo;Hollister riotrdquo; made its way into the movies, immortalized in Marlon Brandorsquo;s ldquo;The Wild One.rdquo; What was the reality behind the myth? Through interviews with the surviving members of the Boozefighters, current member Bill Hayes and club historian Jim ldquo;JQrdquo; Quattlebaum take readers right into the fray for a firsthand account of what happened in Hollister, and the formation of the Boozefighters, where the outlaw biker culture truly began.
