From the PublisherMinnesotaMotorcycle Monthly, December 2007
“Mandatory reading for anyone interested in American motorcycling history. Three-out-of-four cylinders; four-out-of-four if you enjoy ‘motorcycle lifestyle’ periodicals. This is one delightful book.”
"Hayes puts real human faces with, and lends authentic human voices to the legends, myths and lore of those early biker days . The narrative is helped along considerably by the many vintage photographs, most of them black-and-white snaps, that show clearly the youthful glint in the eyes of then-young-men. There is little tough-guy posturing in those old pictures. Most of the guys are smiling, happy to be alive and happy to be on their bikes . Frozen in time, they have no idea that they're about to ride straight into the history books. And that's what makes them so appealing and what makes The Original Wild Ones worth reading."

"A raucous and heartfelt recounting of the early days of biker clubs."
