HISTORY OF BFMC
“The Boozefighters Motorcycle Club is one of the oldest continually active motorcycle clubs in the world. It was founded in 1946 by “Wino” Willie Forkner at the All American Bar in Los Angeles, California.”
The Boozefighter Motorcycle Club (BFMC) was formed by a bunch of guys fresh out of World World II. “Wino” Willie Forkner (deceased 1997) is recognized to be the founder. They were at the infamous Hollister, California event of July 4, 1947 which has been immortalized by the movie “The Wild One,” starring Marlon Brando. Lee Marvin played the part of “Wino.”
The term “Boozefighter” does not mean we are against responsible use of alcohol. However, we do forbid the use of non-prescription drugs, or any form of illegal activity. The Boozefighters have never been “one-percenters” or an Outlaw Club. We believe in respecting the rights of all motorcycle clubs in a peaceful, co-existent manner, and of all members of the community. We believe in freedom of choice and freedom of the road.
The BFMC supports various fundraisers like the Toy Run that benefits children with the Mental Health Retardation Society and Wish with Wings, Inc who provides presents for children impacted by debilatate disease. The BFMC is one of the oldest active motorcycle clubs in existence. There are chapters across the United States and abroad. A truly international organization. It is this rich history that is being preserved in the spirit of fellowship and good fun.
