In the early 90s, the Montreal Hell's Angels, reputedly the most ruthless bikers in the world, subdued all comers except the tough-as-nails members of the Rock Machine. Seven years of bloody conflict, which left over 160 people dead and countless injured, was the result of this clash. Heavily outnumbered, the Rock Machine appealed to the worldwide Bandidos Motorcyle Club - in January 2000, The Rock Machine ceased to be and became a probationary Bandidos chapter. Winterhaldercoordinated the transition. This is the story of his life and times as biker outlaw.
