MC stands for Motorcycle Club. All members of HAMC World ride motorcycles.
81 is a metonym. It stands for the 8th letter of the alphabet which is an H, and the 1st letter of the alphabet which is an A, HA = Hells Angels.
Red & White is another metonym; Red & White are the colors of the club. Red letters on a white background.
Colors are yet another metonym. Colors or Patch stand for any motorcycle club’s insignia. On the top of the back of the vest is HELLS ANGELS, and the bottom is the Countries/States/Charters location. These are called rockers. In the center is the logo called the Death Head, and the small square with MC stands for Motorcycle Club. The Hells Angels, as well as most motorcycle clubs have copyrights on their name and logo.
Hells Angels paraphernalia is only for members of our club. No one else but us is allowed to produce, sell or buy any items with the words HELLS ANGELS and our logo with our DEATH HEAD.
How do I join the club? If you have to ask, you probably will not understand the answer. Hells Angels are true motorcycle enthusiasts and our motorcycle is our primary means of transportation. On the average a club member will ride 20.000 kilometers plus a year. Each Charter varies in their requirements, but if you are really interested you should talk to a member in your area. If you have to ask where the nearest Charter is …you are not ready to join our Motorcycle Club.
Can my friends and I start a Hells Angels Charter? If you have to ask, you probably will not understand the answer. Motorcycle Clubs consist of people who have ridden together for years, live in the same area, are known by the community, have runs and parties, and are a brotherhood. It is a Motorcycle Club as opposed to an association such as Harley Owners Group, or Goldwing Riders, which allow anyone to join as long as they have a Harley or Goldwing. Not to say associations are better or worse, just different; they don’t ride 20,000+ a year together, or know each other as well as you know your family, which is what a Motorcycle Club is about. If you’re already in a Motorcycle Club you know how to start a Hells Angels Charter in your area, and if you’re not…well, that’s probably why you asked the question in the first place.
Support merchandise 1. If you want to buy support gear, go to one of our support shops; check out the links on this site or the Internet in general for original 81 Support Shops. Do not support imposters.
Support merchandise 2. Some people think that you have to own a Harley to wear or display club support merchandise, but it’s not true. Your purchases show that you support the club’s philosophy of being free, brothers who are locked down, and it also helps the local charter put on runs and events that motorcycle riders of all makes of motorcycles and even those who don’t own a bike, enjoy.
Retired or Undercover! There is no such thing as a retired or undercover Hells Angels member and never has been! There are a few of our brothers who cannot associate with us due to our govt. and their parole stipulations.
My uncle is a Hells Angel! Unless you know for sure, that sounds like bullshit. Quite a few people tell that story and they are usually wrong.
Missing members? We do not answer questions about members. You can post a message on our guestbook.
Missing apostrophe in Hells Angels? Yes, we know that there is an apostrophe missing but it is you who miss it. We don't.
