Synopsis

Keeg, the leader of a Los Angeles motorcycle gang, attacks Romko, an artist who is sketching the gang, and takes away his drawings. When Romko again attempts to sketch the gang, he is beaten up and his hands are slashed. Keeg warns the members of the gang that the sketches can be incriminating because of the gang's white slavery operations in Las Vegas. Lea, a follower of the gang, invites Romko into her apartment and summons Docky to attend to Romko's injured hands. Working with the gang to detain Romko long enough for Keeg to ransack his apartment of all the remaining sketches, Lea offers to pose in the nude for Romko. He visits her the next day, and they make love. Meanwhile, the motorcycle gang has kidnaped Janie from the local high school with the intention of making her a prostitute. The entire gang rapes her, and Keeg gives her a large dose of LSD. Keeg then forces another girl, Sandy, to have sex with one of the members of the gang. The police arrive at Lea's apartment to investigate the attack that had been made on Romko. Romko refuses to cooperate with the police, and he and Lea are arrested but are released from jail the next day. Members of the gang capture Romko, take him to a cellar, and torture him by squeezing his hands in a vise. Lea arrives with a gun, but she lacks the courage to shoot, and Sandy grabs the gun from her hand and shoots Keeg. The police then arrive and arrest the members of the gang for raping Janie.
