Chicago Outlaws 1964

November 16, 2010

In this new Fuelfed category called Vintage Motor Culture, we’re paying homage to the roots of motor culture. We’ll be posting weekly vintage shots from eras that helped define the Fuelfed spirit.

All the below shots are by Danny Lyon in Chicago 1964.

The Outlaws Motorcycle Club was established in 1935 at Matilda’s Bar on old Route 66 in McCook, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.

By the 1960’s the club had established the Outlaw Nation, growing new chapters in several surrounding states. Today, the Outlaws are one of the biggest motorcycles clubs in the world with Chicago as the Mother Chapter.



In Honor of Joe Sterling

November 9, 2010

Joe Sterling Swagger Wagon


A good friend of my father and famous editorial photographer, Joe Sterling, passed this Sunday at 74 years young. Joe has known me since the day I was born.

In recent years, Joe came back into my life for various reasons. He was an early  pioneer at capturing the youth culture in Chicago back in the early 1960’s. Today his works have permanent places in MOMA and Getty.

Joe may not have been a car guy, but he definitely had the Fuelfed spirit and certainly knew how to capture it.

God’s speed, Joe, may you rest in peace.
