The Boozefighters Motorcycle Club

The Boozefighters MC was founded in 1946 by WWII vet William Forkner and ironically named after, you guessed it, his fondness of a good stiff drink.  Comprised mostly of fellow servicemen, they pushed their bikes and themselves to the limit.  These guys were a notable presence in the 47' Gypsy Tours in Hollister, California; an event that helped shaped biker culture as we know it and was the inspiration for 1953 film, The Wild One.
