Chapter 3 of the Boozefighters Motorcycle Club is located in San Diego California. The Chapter was started by Snowman and he is the charter holder of this chapter to this day.
Snowman has been involved in the biker community and riding with other clubs since when he
returned from the war in Vietnam and in 1981 he searched for the Original Boozefighters to see if
he could get the club back up and running after the original members allowed the club to become
dormant. In his mind, letting a club with this much History not continue would be a great loss.
Take a moment to read about the Boozefighter Motorcycle Club was formed by
veterans of World War II. "Wino" Willie Forkner is recognized as 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 "Chino", based on "Wino" Willie Forkner.

As you'll see in some of the photos, the racing culture that existed then, which continues today, which gave rise to a special kind of motorcycle engine, the "stroker". According to historians, it originated in the So Cal Racing circuit, shortly after the introduction of the Harley Davidson knucklehead. "Sitting around on a Saturday, at the bike shop, guys even from different clubs drinking beer together. CB Clauson, a Boozefighter was eyeing a scooter. He walked over and looked at it very calculatingly. CB picked up a piston from that scooter, walked over to another scooter, and looked at the cylinders. He then started to take measurements. No one had any idea what he was up to. This was when he had the idea that if he interchanged the pistons he could make a 'stroker' motor - which he did and the stroker was born.
To us, being a member of the Boozefighters Motorcycle Club is all about riding hard, partying hard and spending time with Brothers and Family.
