Description

The Animals in Lafayette, a gang of old men who rode Harley-Davidson's from Indy, The Outlaws from Detroit, and Hells Angels, were some of our first friends.

Petit accident à peine perceptible en marges des pages 48 et 49 ainsi qu'une déchirure fermée de 8 mm. If you don't get shoulder to shoulder an' learn to roll with the waves you're gonna get either walked on or awful frustated. A nice copy: Fine clothbound hardcover with a small bump to one edge of one board, a red dot to the bottom edge of the text block which has bled a bit onto some interior pages, and an inscription to the ffep in a Fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to the extremities and two tiny closed tears. An interesting look into the counter-culture of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club in the 1950’s and 60’s.We had a place to party in Lafayette, an old four story warehouse, where we got together with our friends.

Light wear, sunfading on spine, small bit of loss on top and bottom of spine, slight scuffing and bumping on sides of wraps and text block. Work on The Bikeriders began in earnest when, at the invitation of a mechanic repairing his Triumph, he attended a meeting of the Chicago Outlaws and joined them as a member. But once you do you are treated to these small stories of people living in a world that most of us will never encounter or engage with otherwise. For this project Lyon photographed and ultimately joined the Chicago Outlaws, a motorcycle racing club more interested in the emerging American biker culture than in winning on the track. First edition; 8vo (234 x 158 mm, 9¼ x 6¼ in); black-and-white photographs in offset, photographs and text by Danny Lyon, light foxing to preliminary and end pages, occasional light marks, light toning to edges, black cloth-covered boards, titles stamped in silver on spine and rear, light wear to extremities, leaning slightly, grey endpapers, lightly marked, photo-illustrated dust-jacket, printed in black, blue, and orange, small strip of adhesive residue on verso from historic jacket protector, light wear, slight curl and soft creasing to top and bottom edges, a very good copy; ix, [i], 94pp.

By joining their ranks, he demonstrated that he wanted to be one of them and could describe their way of life from the inside out. An inside look, in photos and the bikers' own words, of the members of the Chicago Outlaws, a renegade motorcycle club, of their lives and lifestyle, by an award-winning photo-journalist who was a club member. My motorcycle fever ended on September 19, 1967 when I rode my motorcycle into a tree after my headlamp went out. Lyon's important first book, a collection of black and white photographs of the bikers from the Chicago Outlaws.
