Pissed Off Bastards of Bloomington

The Pissed Off Bastards of Bloomington was a motorcycle club that, in 1947, along with the Boozefighters and the Market Street Commandos, participated in the highly-publicized Hollister incident (later immortalized on film as "The Wild One" [ [http://www.thehistorychannel.com "Hell's Angels", The History Channel, 1998] ] [ [http://www.sonnybarger.com "Hell's Angel: the Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club", by Ralph "Sonny" Barger, with Keith and Kent Zimmerman, 2000, HarperCollins, pages 25-47] ] ).

After the Hollister incident, a prominent Pissed Off Bastard named Otto Friedli split with the club and formed his own group on March 17, 1948 in Fontana, just west of San Bernardino. He called it the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. In 1954 Otto's new club merged with the Market Street Commandos to become the Hells Angels San Francisco Chapter.
