Évidemment, il est a considérer que cette encyclopédie est plus spécifique au monde motard anglo-saxon et relativement succincte quant au reste du monde.
Couverture souple, beau papier manque peut-être un peu d'illustration.
Bon boulot de l'auteur.
Aucun soucis de livraison, le livre vient d'Angleterre, il est arrivé en deux jours et plus rapidement qu'un autre objet commandé à la même date provenant de France.

1)FILTHY FEW is sub group within the Hells Angels MC ONLY, and a club that stole the name in New Zealand. It is NOT a "common idiom throughout the motorcycle culture".
2)The NUGGETS MC has not flown the described patch of "a beer drinking rabbit on a motorcycle" since it's very early days. Since the late 60's, they've flown their current patch--- a gold nugget with a motorcycle inside. They rode full dressers back then and morphed into choppers--an interesting fact not mentioned.
3)The Mongrel Mob of NZ should not have been included--- they wear cuts with patches but they DON'T RIDE.
4)The Gypsy Jokers is listed as a"classic club" and it is--- their patch is listed as a grinning skull... gee whiz, that's the Australian club who just appropriated the name and made up their own patch. The Aussies have since made a connection to the originals and adopted the real top and bottom rockers but kept the skull center patch. The REAL Gypsy Joker patch was and is a walking jester--- that's a real boner on the author's part. An annoying incomplete--"Curious about that demonic critter on the Pagan's patch?" sez the back cover and the blurb on Amazon--- Yeah, it's the norse fire demon Surtur or dark Surt, BUT they DON"t say that it's a direct lift from a 1963 issue of Marvel comic's JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY in a TALES OF ASGARD story drawn by one of the greatest comic book artists of the 20th century- JACK KIRBY. Despite these criticisms, it's still a cool book...
One really funny feature is a reprint of a 1960's cop manuel on outlaw bikers--- so THAT'S where they got the idea that I had a shotgun rigged up in my handlebars!
The book is merely an identification of OMC colors or patches with very little information about the clubs. My bad for making that assumption, but the book would be more fairly referred to as a OMC colors or patch picture book. I wanted the book for more of a historical purpose, something to show the evolution of the clubs, their conflicts, alliances and the dynamics of their criminal involvement. I should have done a little more research before I bought the book.
List of clubs is incomplete. For example there are no Satan's Angels, Rebels(from Canada), Stray Satans, Straight Satans etc.
But one percent bikerdom there is not only list of clubs.
I've expected an explanation of terms connected with one-percenters like "mama", "old lady", "run", "originals" etc,
list of names(like Sonny Barger, Mom Boucher, Walter Stadnick to name the few) of people connected with biker scene(also names like Christine Deese), events like Altamont Concert, Milperra Massacre, Shedden Massacre, Lennoxville Massacre. Also biker books(with much detailed descriptions than in above mentioned book review) and evemtually biker movies would have been welcomed too.
Alas, it looks that I've expected too much. So only 3 stars.
If Mr Hayes wants factual information he may contact me thru his story source R.H. aka Weebles. Lil K, Knights Motorcycle Club since 1979. Club was founded in 1975. We are certainly alive well and riding all throughout the US.
