15 Vintage Pics Of The Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club

Meet the Iron Horsemen, an outlaw one-percenter MC, where members have some crazy stories to tell.

To the normal law-abiding citizen of the US, even one with a love for motorcycles and the open road, the idea of a motorcycle club (MC) will probably always be alien and somewhat suspicious.

Being part of a motorcycle club isn’t easy; in fact, getting in is tough enough. And if that motorcycle club turns out to be a one-percenter, then it's even tougher. Worse so, being in a motorcycle club that does not follow the rules of the AMA does not get you far with the authorities.

Of course, it doesn’t help that outlaw motorcycle clubs delve into illegal activities. Being a one-percenter MC tends to make rebels out of the rebels, which means many MCs start to take it too far. Meet the Iron Horsemen, another one-percenter MC, where members have some crazy stories to tell.

Salyers sentenced to 20 years in Casey motorcycle gang killing

GREENSBURG — David Salyers was back in Green Circuit Court today, dressed in faded blue jail duds this time instead of the crisp new dress shirts he wore during his trial in January.

His attorney Jude Hagan was there as well. Together they tried to convince Judge Judy Vance that Salyers deserved something less than the 20 years, six months in prison recommended by the jury that convicted Salyers of complicity to murder in the 2012 shooting death of Gleason Pyles at Tarter Gate Co. in Casey County.

It was to no avail. Vance said even though a pre-sentencing report indicated Salyers "lacked a serious criminal history," she weighed victim impact statements submitted by members of Pyles' family and decided to impose the sentence "as recommended by the jury in this case."
