The bikers who chose the name back in 1948 were former World War 2 pilots, bombardiers, navigators, & gunners. In the decades since, they have been romanticized as rugged individualists sorely misunderstood by a regimented society, the last truly free men. Their detractors dismiss them as ragged amateurs in motorized mayhem dedicated to bikes, booze and broads. But the Hell's Angels are changing their image. The days of the long-haired bearded, tattooed biker astride his Harley Davidson are numbered. Only the future will tell if these new businessmen will take care of business or if their business will take care of them. ---THE MOTORCYCLE MOB ---Angels today are more likely to wear suits than colors. They still value the grinning Death's Head, but keep it for funerals, runs, initiations and laying heavies. Angels, like the undercover policemen who tail them, prefer street clothes to blend in with the surroundings. They've replaced their Harleys with Corvettes, Lincolns & Cadillacs. The new mob shows class. Call them the Knights of the Road. Call them something more sinister. This is the book that calls them what they are, & tells it like it is.", any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
