The Outlaws and some other 1 percenter clubs exists in many states of the U.S. Read about the Outlaws and many other active motorcycle clubs in Indiana overe here →. 


1% club: The genesis of this phrase dates back to the famous 1947 Hollister riot. Allegedly, the AMA (American Motorcycle Association) had commented that 99% of motorcycle riders were citizens who conformed to the law and that only 1% were outlaws (not to be confused with Outlaws Motorcycle Club).

Many motorcycle clubs who have been associated with organized crime, and have had run-ins with law enforcement agencies use the 1% diamond patch and are commonly referred to as the one percenter motorcycle club (also called an outlaw biker group); More about this here. Some popular 1% clubs are Outlaws MC (a very dominant club), Hells Angels (the main rival group of the outlaws), Pagan Motorcycle Club and Black Pistons MC. The motorcycle subculture in Florida has seen various gangs over the years

MC (Motorcycle Club): The term Motorcycle Club (MC) does carry a meaning outside and beyond the usual English definition of it. It is a popular term in the Outlaw and 1% motorcycling subculture where it is often used by motorcycling clubs which have had a history in organized crime. Such clubs (MCs) often denote these by wearing what are called colors — essentially a 3-piece patchwork.

However, not all motorcycling clubs who use the term MC are necessarily an Outlaw motorcycle club or a 1% club. But it wouldn’t be wrong to say that all dangerous biker gangs are one percenters.

Harleys: It goes with saying that most riders in various clubs swear by their Harley Davidson Motorcycle or a custom chopper. Harley David Motorcycles enjoy a disproportionately high popularity among MC riders who in mainstream culture are known to promote the use of cruiser motorcycles.

Here's more on the 1% MC culture. What does the 13 number patch means in the MC world? Read here.

  1. My Grandfather’s house is for sale it’s a large 2 story house right in the lake with a winding driveway and a roomy 2 car garage. It has large rooms and no HOA I want to sell it as a bikers clubhouse it’s $650,000.00

  2. Right on the lake not in the lake ????

    • Haha! Thanks for stopping by Kristin.
      I hope one of the thousands of folks (this post receives 1000s of eyeballs each month) is your ideal customer. ????

  3. Hey Mike. That’s a decent list, but some of the most famous clubs there are (that have chapters in FL) aren’t on the list while some barely knowns or unknowns are. Not sure if that’s by design or you just were unaware.

  4. While I appreciate the subject of this article I do have to point out that it is very incomplete historically and culturally. One of the first motorcycle clubs established in the state of Florida was actually the Iron Horse MC founded by Bessie Stringfield also known as the motorcycle queen of Miami. You also failed to mention Outcast MC which was founded in 1969 with chapters all over the state of Florida. There are several others but I think you get my point.

    • Thank you so much Big Bone 1%er for your input!
      The article has been updated and is definitely a lot richer thanks to you. 🙂
