As far as I know this was the world's first biker movie about a gang of hairy chopper-ridin' fellows who are also blatant homosexuals.  In fact I can't think of any other gay biker movies that came after it either.  The most memorable actor in this is Dan Haggerty who did that GRIZZLY ADDAMS show in the 70's about a man who lived in the wilderness with his pet bear.  Unfortunately he's not part of the gay gang but there is a scene where he has his hair done up in ribbons which is just precious.  This movie is clearly supposed to be a comedy and it is funny but not always in the parts where it's supposed to be.  It's designed for an era where gays were completely stereotyped and most of the laughs are derived watching it today by thinking about how ridiculous peoples views were in these times and at all the over the top reactions to our swishy heroes.  The whole thing really comes off as a sort of strange parody of biker flicks which was also probably a bit shocking in its time.  It's oddness is really what I like most about this grungy little tale.  Another unexpected aspect is the typical downer 70's ending which comes completely out of nowhere.  The director of this was allegedly an insane person, who only made one other movie about a psychopathic kid's TV show host.  I don't find any of that very hard to believe after seeing this a couple of times.
