HISTORY - The founding of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club


HISTORY - The founding of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club
On March 17th 1948 the first Hells Angels Motorcycle Club was founded in the Fontana/San Bernardino (BERDOO) area in the USA. About the same time, other clubs were formed in various places in the state of California, but none of these clubs were associated with Hells Angels nor with each other. Most of them do not exist today, but the BERDOO charter in (San Bernardino) still does.
During the fifties more Hells Angels Charters came into existence. In the beginning the different charters had nothing to do with each other, but after some years they united and a regular criteria of admission was laid down. From having been exclusively a Californian phenomenon, the club developed internationally in 1961. It happened when the first charter outside California was adopted – strangely enough – as far away as Auckland, New Zealand. During the sixties Hells Angels spread out to the East Coast of the USA and later to the Midwest.
The admission of clubs from all over the globe caused changes in the structure of the Hells Angels. The small motorcycle club from BERDOO was now Mother Charter to the world´s biggest motorcycle brotherhood, the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club World. Today Hells Angels MC World has charters in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia.
