The Legacy Project is the preservation of our history for all of us.

The preservation project of the Satyrs M/C historical archives along with all archives in the collection of more than 23 original clubs since 1954.

They changed the world.

One hundred years of changing social views, transition from the wild west to metropolitan growth and the influx of new communities caused major shifts in Los Angeles prior to the club formation.

The Satyrs helped spawn the growth of hundreds of motorcycle clubs, uniform clubs and many leather organizations over the nearly six decades of existence.

The club members impact over the years on gay history, culture, discrimination, police raids, entrapment and even charity has been widely documented.

The advantage of being the world’s oldest gay organization is the breadth and depth of our photographic collection and the collection we have accumulated from others.  The disadvantage is that there is no way we can show you the wonderful historic photographic collection we have on this website.  However we have provided for the historic photos for viewing under our Legacy Project tab.

This gallery is for showing our latest couple of events.  Some random historic and past event photos are shown below in the rotating gallery.  We suggest that scholars and researchers looking for access to the vast collection of photos look under the Legacy Projects tab.  Low resolution photos used for any purpose whatsoever must show “Copyright: Satyrs Motorcycle Club of Los Angeles - Satyrs Archives”.  Licensed use of photos for commercial purposes must be secured in advance by contacting the Club Archivist below.  

High resolution photos are also available.  Scholars and researchers may use photos for non-commercial use with attributes to The Satyrs Motorcycle Club.
