Plot[edit]

A former motorcycle gang leader, Mike (Tom Stern), returns home from Vietnam to resume his life and form a new motorcycle gang. Using all his gathered experience as a hero from the war he tries to unite all the existing motorcycle gangs in the neighborhood and put together a brand new, super outlaw gang. They beat a road police officer who wants to give them a parking ticket. Although the sheriff tries to calm everybody down, things are not going down well. Very soon Mike faces big trouble when Speed, one of his gang members, is stopped on fake possession charges and murdered on retaliation. The trouble intensifies when an all-out cop against biker war breaks out.[3]
