THE OLDEST MOTORCYCLE CLUB IN THE WORLD
THE BEGINNING OF IT ALL
The Yonkers Motorcycle Club originally started as the Yonkers Bicycle Club, which was founded by Elliott Mason on Nov 19, 1879. The club consisted of 25 men, who wore a greyish brown corduroy uniform with a polo cap bearing the clubs initials, and the club colors were of crimson and gold. Elliott Mason was a “Columbia” bicycle agent in Yonkers, who went to work as a general manager for the Pope Manufacturing Company at 12 Warren Street, establishing the oldest cycle depot in New York City. Over the years, he became one of Colonel Albert Augustus Pope’s most loyal and trusted companions.
