Two rival motorcycle gangs terrorize a small town after one of their leaders is thrown in jail.
Based on a 1951 short story in Harper's Magazine entitled "The Cyclists' Raid," which in turn was based upon a real-life incident in Hollister, California, in 1947. The actual incident, however, bore little resemblance to the events depicted in the movie. Although spirited, the cyclists did not run amok or become violent. In fact, they were invited back to Hollister over the July 4, 1997 weekend for a 50th-anniversary celebration of the original incident.
