This poster depicts "Ralph ''Sonny'' Barger / founder of the Hell''s Angels Motorcycle Club". He is visible from the waist up riding a motorcycle and wearing sunglasses. "Land of the Free" is in small, black text in the upper right portion of the page. There is an Oakland Oak Tree symbol in the bottom left hand corner and a row of three, captioned images of other Hell''s Angels across the bottom edge. "Oakland, CA" is below.

This was from a series of 10 posters celebrating local "patron saints and sinners" that were wheat-pasted all over town the year Oaklandish was founded as "a covert street art campaign designed to illuminate local history and the unique cultural legacy existing here in 'the Town’ “. [LMC]
