If you rode a bike in the fifties you were considered to be an outlaw or a JD (Juvenile Delinquent).
While it's true, some Bikers do live on the edge, most were far from being outlaws. Maybe the white
T-shirt, black motorcycle jacket and boots and earthshaking sound of a Harley had something to do
with this image.
Over time bikers and bike clubs have worked hard to change the outlaw image and
have largely succeeded. Today a biker could be your neighbor, your boss or your Doctor. Still.....
the 50's Outlaw image lives on as a part of history. Sweat it out on the streets in these Chrome Plated Suicide Machines.
