I got my first bike in 1956 (a 1951 FL Hydra Glide)
and started riding around South Florida. Not long after I began partying with
a variety other clubs and bikers
in the area. I am proud to
say that I have made some life long friendships with members from other clubs. I was one of the founding members to start the
(red and white) Outlaws MC in South Florida. After partying with the (black and white) Outlaws MC from up
north, some of us decided that we wanted to be part of their bigger brotherhood.
Those among us who who felt that
way let the A.O.A. Outlaws MC know that we would be honored if
they would consider us becoming a chapter in South Florida, the others
went on to form The Iron Cross MC.
the National President and a few other Officer members came down to sanction the chapter they were
extremely impressed by our brotherhood. I have the honor of
Fat Cowboy 1%er, the A.O.A. National President, and Big Red 1%er G.B.N.F. giving
me my (black and white) Outlaws MC and 1%er patches in 1967. I am proud to have enjoyed
the years out there that I did with the Outlaws MC brotherhood and Nation until they started locking me up in 1978. I sure hope like
hell that I get to do it again. "I live as an Outlaw, I'll die as an Outlaw".
Big Jim 1%er has always shown a brotherhood and leadership
that has been a driving force for bringing in new members and chapters throughout the state of Florida and other states.
Big Jim 1%er served part of a six year sentence for allegedly verbally threatening a public officer in 1978. He was supposed to have
told a Hollywood city cop that he was going to let his Great Dane "Bitch" out to attack him. He paroled to Tucson Arizona for a short
while in 1980. Then he was eventually convicted (6 counts) of possession of a fire arm by a convicted felon in 1981. They came to his
house on some bullshit, then arrested him for any gun that was not in somebody's possession, just when some people was visiting him.
[Don't leave guns laying around when a felon is present, even if it is right next to you!]
Then after a few years in 1987 they brought him back from Terre Haute FCI
to a South Florida court to face RICO charges along with other Outlaws.
His charges where for crimes that he already did time for or found not
guilty, and a few more were added. They gave him two 20's, then said he
was a career criminal, so they added another five onto each 20. The only
thing that he has made a career out of is being locked down, and that is
a fucked up career!
