    • Synopsis
    • The true story of forty years inside one of Australia's first outlaw
      motorcycle clubs as told by its one-time president. With previously
      unrevealed insights into the outlaw world of extreme violence, drugs,
      corruption, sex, treachery and retribution. All names have been changed,
      and identities and events obscured. This is the only way the story could
      be told. 'this story is a true account of the birth of outlaw motorcycle
      clubs in Australia. there was no template for us, it just evolved. It
      shows our simple creed: loyalty to the club and respect for your
      brothers.' David Spiteri was a founding member and long-time President
      of one of Australia's first outlaw motorcycle clubs from its inception
      in the early 1960s through to the early 2000s. He has been uniquely
      placed to witness the clubs develop from loose affiliations of riders to
      the well structured and well connected groups we see today, with links
      to police, politicians and lawyers. In this never-before-told inside
      story, Spiteri puts himself at risk to reveal everything from the drug
      trafficking which funds the clubs' operations to the extreme violence
      that continues to make them infamous. For the first time, the true
      extent of the clubs' corruption will be exposed, and the treachery and
      subsequent retribution enforced by their own brand of law known as 'the
      code' is brought to light. A truly shocking and compelling look at a
      fascinating subculture.
