Name: Bosozoku Location: Japan

History: Started in 1960 as rebellious teenage motorheads who liked nothing more than taunting cops and pushing their machines to the limits the Bosozoku, or violent race tribe as it translates, ride stupidly modified bikes with outrageous bodywork conversions. Gang members must leave as soon as they are 18. Many choose to join the Yakuza, the Japanese Mafia.

Criminal acitivity: Speeding, evading capture, dangerous driving and inter-gang fights lead to murders. Bosozoku crime has more than doubled since 1996 as gangs have increased in size.

How Hard? Bosozoku have started using bats, steel pipes, knives and guns. In Tokyo, a recent scrap left six Bosozoku in hospital.

Name: Bandidos Location: Southern US and Europe

History: Mainly found in Texas the Bandidos are seen by many as Hillbillies but their numbers are growing and the gang is expanding all over the U.*. and into Europe. Fighting in Scandinavia between a Bandido group and a chapter of the Hellí* Angels claimed 13 lives in seven years.

Criminal Activity: Drug running, protection rackets, murder, etc. Much of the fighting in Scandinavia is over who controls the lucrative drug business.

How hard? Not quite as hard as the Hellí* Angels but not a nice bunch. They often join up with other gangs to try and oust the Angels. The latest clash was at a Nevada casino (see above), where they teamed up with the Mongols.

Granted that is just a bit on how they ended up shooting it out with the HA'* and mongols in a casino in nevada..

Basicly the sort of person who drives a whack *** car like that is a yakuza gangster, most likely a mid to low level foot solider who has no qualms about kicking/beating/stabbing/shooting someone who ***** with them. Think of it as a car made to mock or taunt police, society, and the person next to you at a stop light...


Basicly most of the guys who build those cars are nuts..

Here is a very washed down blurb on japanese street racing culture. (which these guys but up against)

google bosozoku, orginaly started as a biker culture but quickly spread into cars and "yakuza trucks and vans". They all sort of merged in the last 5-10 years.
