Chieftains MC (Motorcycle Club)

Chieftains MC is an outlaw motorcycle club founded in Lawrence, Massachusetts in 1976 with chapters also existing in Denmark since 1979.

Chieftains MC History

The Chieftains Motorcycle Club was founded on 26 January 1976 in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

Bikers from Denmark got in touch with the Massachusetts based club around 1977 and became prospects. After 2 years of prospecting the Danish prospects became fully patched members, giving birth to the Chieftains Borderland chapter in Denmark on 20 January 1979.

The Borderland, Denmark chapter acquired land for their clubhouse and finished construction in the spring of 1985.

Throughout the 1980s the Chieftains had multiple chapters throughout New England, however the club’s size has reduced since this time.

Chieftains Netherlands opened in Holland in 1983, however this chapter closed down in 1986.

In 1990 the Denmark chapter hosted the “Prison Run” together with Tornadoes MC in order to support Mental Midgets MC who had been arrested (the Mental Midgets later patched over to the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club).

The Warlocks MC Esbjerg chapter in Denmark (note: no known relation to the Pennsylvania and Florida USA based Warlocks clubs) then patched over to the Chieftains Motorcycle Club in 1996, forming the Seaside Denmark chapter.

The New Hampshire chapter was opened in 2004.

On 3 April 2010 the Denmark chapters of Borderland and Seaside merged with several other clubs to form Devils Choice MC, a Danish Hells Angels MC support club.
