THE GLORY STOMPERS (1967)
The Glory Stompers are a biker gang in this film but not the main gang, that would be The Black Souls. They are led by Dennis Hopper in full-on bad guy mode and they also have Casey Kasem from America's Top 40 and a large muscular fellow named Magoo who looks like a white version of Bolo Yeung in the group. This guy, Robert Tessier would later go on to shave his head and battle Charles Bronson in HARD TIMES.
The plot concerns the kidnapping of one of the Glory Stomper's old ladies and they're quest to get her back before she's sold off into a life of drug-addiction and prostitution to the Mexicans. It's full of the usual biker flick hijinks(drinking, molesting women, hippie pot parties etc.) and it's a decent watch with a groovy soundtrack.
