Lost Breed MC History
The Lost Breed Motorcycle Club were founded in Nelson, New Zealand in 1976.
One of the biggest moments for Lost Breed came in 1979 when 21 of their members were arrested after a fight broke out with rival club Highway 61.
In New Zealand the Lost Breed are one of the clubs that are part of “The Alliance”, which is a group of clubs that have come together. At present this alliance consists of Outcasts, the Epitaph Riders, the Forty-Fives, the Southern Vikings, Satan’s Slaves, Sinn Fein, Nelson, the Lone Legion and Lost Breed.
In 2009 the Red Devils Motorcycle Club (an affiliate club of the Hells Angels), began their operations in the Nelson, New Zealand area. This move provided an opportunity for the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club to force out the Lost Breed.
As at mid 2015 it was estimated that the Lost Breed had a total of 11 patched and prospect members.
In December, 2015 the last of the Lost Breed Motorcycle Club patched over to Hells Angels MC.
