There comes a time in every mans life where he has to decide whether to conform or break out. Ninety-nine percent of us choose to accept the constraints imposed by society. The rest become outlaws. And for this one percent--those who set their own standards, follow their own values, pursue their own esthetic--the outlaw motorcyclist community offers sanctuary.

Motorcyclists have always been outlaws to some extent, just by choosing such a dangerous and flamboyant sport. But the one percenters live the outlaw life 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

One Percenter: The Legend of The Outlaw Bikers tells the story of this rebellion without a cause--other than freedom and living to the extreme. From the earliest days of the subculture--when World War II veterans began forming early motorcycle clubs--to modern times; this is the real-life account of the wild ones, who one-by-one made their own world.

From the Back Cover:

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to decide whether to conform to the dictates of society or break away and chart his own path. Ninety-nine percent of us choose to conform; the rest become outlaws. For this one percent, the outlaw motorcycle community offers sanctuary.

 

Motorcyclists have always been nonconformists to some extent; after all, if they weren’t, they’d drive Honda Accords instead of riding something as dangerous as a motorcycle. But the one percenters live the outlaw life 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One Percenter: The Legend of the Outlaw Bikers tells the story of this rebellion without a cause other than the pursuit of freedom and living to the extreme. One Percenter takes readers inside the belly of the beast.

From the Inside Flap:

Outlaw motorcyclists—the infamous “one percenters” labeled as outlaws by the American Motorcyclist Association—live life on the fringe. To survive, they’ve formed a new community, one with standards and values more in keeping with their own outlaw aesthetic, one that often takes the form of a motorcycle club.

 

One Percenter: The Legend of the Outlaw Bikers tells the story of this enigmatic embodiment of rebellion, from the earliest days of the subculture, when veterans returning from World War II began forming the first motorcycle clubs, to modern times, when the outlaw motorcycle subculture has evolved to the point of a cottage industry.
