History of the Chosen Few Motorcycle Club – By Boss Mike
These brothers all rode full dress Harley’s & chopped dressers.The purpose of the club was to ride and enjoy the new black biker set in Los Angeles & Oakland, California.Two names were placed on the table as to what the club was going to be called. “The Patriots Of Iron & Steel” was one, the “Chosen Few ” the other. After choosing the latter, The Chosen Few MC was born.
The original patch was black & white. After a while it was changed to red & white. An oval sea of red blood with white human crossed bones in the center and white letters saying “Chosen Few” arched across the top of the cross.
The ’60’s was a hell of a time. With the Civil Rights Movement, The Viet Nam war, flower power & free love. Sex drugs & rock & roll.
Also the crazy world of the outlaw bikers.
When you talk of the outlaw bikers you automatically think of “Them crazy white boys” doing what a lot of folk wish they could do.
“Live life like you want to & fuck you and your rules”.
Well guess what? There was some crazy black bikers who felt the same way, and didn’t give a FUCK.
Thus was born the black outlaw bikers !
Clubs like the “East Bay Dragons”, “Fresco Rattlers”, “Outlaw Vagabonds”, “Defiant Ones” and down south in Los Angeles the “Choppers”, “Soul Brothers” & of course the “Chosen Few”.
The first white boy to come to the Chosen Few was “White Boy Art.” He came around 1960, followed by “White Boy Tom”. Soon we started to attract other white outlaw riders that wanted to join us.
The Chosen Few became a multi racial MC with chapters that were, all black, all white, half white and Mexican, half black and half white, all Mexican, Half Mexican & Indian with a few Asians & one Iranian.
Our “Take None, Give None” Diamond was given to us
by “69 Jim” who was a 5 foot 6 inch radical Mexican.
This patch has stood the test of time.
The club may have started out black, but our white brothers took us head on into the outlaw biker world.
The white clubs knew about the Chosen Few. They knew it was a black club. Then they saw the white brothers flying the same patch as the blacks. The shit hit the fan.
A lot of the white clubs called our white brothers “Nigger Lovers ” & said ,”you belong to a Nigger Club”. The white brothers didn’t give a shit.
They fought for their place in the outlaw biker world & flew the Chosen Few colors proudly.
The White Brothers brought a true brotherhood to the club.
The Chosen Few was the 1st fully integrated outlaw MC.
It became well known that ” In black & white we really had might”.

It’s About The Size Of The Fight in The Few”
