Hells Angels Circa 1965.

In 1965 a struggling reporter by the name of Bill Ray hung out with the Angels and took pictures for a spread in Life Magazine that were never published. Predictably, his editor said the Angels looked too dirty for middle America. They were just recently re-discovered, and offer a rare glimpse into the counter culture of the Angels’ lifestyle.
