Monday Movie: The Death Wheelers (aka Psychoimania)

Monday Movie: The Death Wheelers (aka Psychoimania)

Pretty cool concept, a biker obsessed with cheating death finds his answer in the occult. Unique to most "biker films", this one is based on the  british "Rocker" biker culture before it was influenced by the Californian style. Cafe racers and Stiletto Jackets where the rage when this culture was at its peak in the 1950's and early 60's. This film is worth the watch just to see a motorcycle burst from a grave. Also tip of the hat to our friends in Quebec, who will be releasing their second album on Riding Easy Records any day now.

Monday Movies: The Hard Ride

Monday Movies: The Hard Ride

You might have seen this one at a Guerilla movie night we co presnted last year, but if not this is the story of a soldier returning from Nam who is left his dead buddies prized possession, a pretty radical Knucklehead Chopper. The bike comes with a past though, including a woman, and a gang of outlaws who want to get their hand on both. Honestly the movie is so/so, but the quality of the bikes more than makes up for it. Long bikes with crazy sissy bars and pipes that sweep up to the heavens. If your killing time...

Being a biker is not just about attitude and what you wear, but about the company you keep and how you carry yourself. Some say you can't become a biker, you are born one, I don't know if we agree with that, but living by a...

Monday Movie: (Throwback Thursday eddition) The Outcasts

  This Documentary from 1985 looks at a small independant MC from Yarmouth, England. (Not to be mistaken with the US MC of the same name) This is a window into the MC world before the Sons of Anarchy makeover. These guys are the dregs. Dirty, broke and living for the moment. No fortune and glory, the only thing holding them together is the brotherhood and the bikes. While it's got unintentional moments of Spinal Tap hilarity, at the end its a pretty sad story of loss and a dying lifestyle. Trapped between the Law and larger clubs they will...

Monday Movie: "Werewolves on Wheels"

Winter is here, so along with wrenching our hearts out, now is a good time to catch up on some TV time that gets in the way of riding any other time of the year. We love movies, so every Monday we hope to share not only some of our favorites but also movies that for us give you a glimpse of what we are about. Some of the films we will pick will be documentaries about rad chopper builders, or subcultures that shaped us, but to start it off lets have fun with one of the greatest greasy biker...
