The San Francisco Motorcycle Club (SFMC) was founded in San Francisco, California in 1904. It has been in continuous operation since its inception.[1] This makes it the second oldest motorcycle club in the United States, preceded only by the Yonkers MC of Yonkers, New York, founded in 1903.

The SFMC has been a member of the American Motorcyclist Association since 1924. Members are not limited to riding any particular make or model of motorcycle and include males and females.
