Outlaw motorcycle clubs have become an increasingly powerful presence in the world of organized crime around the globe. While they claim to exist for no other reason than to enjoy a free lifestyle and riding motorcycles many clubs and chapters have been busted for crimes ranging from extortion and drug dealing to racketeering and murder.
These clubs have always said they live outside the boundaries of conventional society and play by their own rules. Their wild and criminal behavior led them to be labeled as “One Percenters,” a reference to a comment allegedly made by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) in which it stated that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, implying that the last one percent were outlaws.
They were eager to live up to that label.
The most famous outlaw motorcycle club is undoubtedly the Hells Angels MC. But in its wake other clubs have formed and carved out a substantial piece of territory. Most of these clubs formed in the United States and opened chapters around the world in the years thereafter. Other notable American-born clubs are the Bandidos, the Mongols, and the Outlaws. But as those clubs spread out into other countries, local clubs became bolder as well, and pretty quickly you had regional outlaw motorcycle clubs fighting against the more established ones.
Here at Gangsters Inc. we aim to keep you informed on all these clubs from all around the world. For your convenience we have listed them by club. When an article mentions more than one club and it is unclear who is the main subject of the piece it will be listed below under “various.”
