Outlaw biker magazine with first issue published in 1970.
“Colors was a good magazine, especially considering the people involved were bikers, not journalists making their living from publishing. The idea was to have a voice, and ‘Tell it like it is.’ Let people know what was going on, and in many cases, the other side of the story. The stories and information released to the news media by law enforcement and the government were often times misleading or untrue.
“It was also going to be a tool to support our efforts in repealing the Mandatory Helmet Laws and other injustices to motorcyclists. And in a way, it did do what it was intended to, by being imitated by larger publishers. The format carried over, and we were in an even better position to inform the bikers of America what was going on.”

Don't miss this week's event: The Castellar Speedfest... There will be sun, cool bikes, cars, paint, etc. WASTED WHEELS will be there (we even have painted one of the give-away helmets the organisation will be offering this year!). Come with your bike, car or whatever and spend a good time.
Last but not least, thanks to Marcos from Free Kustom Cycles, for inviting us this year too!
