Bloody and long-lasting: the feud between Hells Angels and Outlaws

The history of the bitter hatred between the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and the American Outlaws Association is shrouded in claim, rumour and counter-claim.

Some sources say that it began in Monterey, California, in 1964 when four Angels were accused of rape. The need to pay the brothers’ legal bills allegedly drove the club to become involved in crime.

Other reports suggest that the rivalry dates from 1969 when an Outlaw allegedly raped the wife of a leading Hells Angel. This led to the murder of three Outlaws in Florida.

Whatever its origins, the feud has proved to be long-lasting, international and bloody.

Members of outlaw motorcycle clubs — of which the largest are the Hells Angels, the Outlaws and the Bandidos — have clashed with each other around the world.

Authorities in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein are dealing with a biker gang war as the Bandidos try to move into an area regarded by the Hells Angels as their territory.
