Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The real name of the director of Outlaw Motorcycles was Titus Moede; his nom de film, Titus Moody, was lifted from a character who used to appear on the old Fred Allen radio show. Moede/Moody is the only credited participant of Outlaw Motorcycles, a docudrama about the California cycle scene. We are treated to an enactment of a biker wedding and a biker funeral, several staged sequences of wild parties, and endless shots of cycle races, both on and off the track. Despite the film's lurid title, nothing much really happens. The whole thing looks like a glorified home movie, which makes the hardcase types who appear in Outlaw Motorcycles seem endearingly childlike at times.
