A group of northern California motorcyclists known as the Hell's Angels roar into a town near San Francisco and terrorize a gas station owner and his patrons. That night they are joined by the gas station attendant, Poet, who has been fired from his job because he argued with a customer. After joining the Angels in a gang fight, Poet accompanies them to an amusement park and is beaten up by four sailors. In retaliation, the gang, led by Buddy, tracks down the sailors and kills one of them. Then they all go to the apartment of Buddy's girl, Shill, for a wild party. Warned by highway officer Bingham that the Angels are prime suspects in the sailor's murder, Buddy decides that they should go away for the weekend. Plans are made for two of the Angels, Gypsy and Abigale, to be married in Nevada. Following the unconventional church wedding and a battle with local thugs, the gang moves on to the "ruins," a favorite hangout, where a party is in session. During the orgy, Buddy and Poet quarrel over Shill, and a vicious fight ensues. The violence ends when Buddy crashes through a glass window and dies in the flames of his burning motorcycle.
