In the late seventies and early eighties, all bikies wanted to do was drink, party and ride bikes. That — and the odd brawl with other clubs. It's a life-style Snoddy takes to with ease. He meets Lee through a fellow 'nom' (nominee) and a relationship develops. Jock is recruiting, and Snoddy helps lure Caesar Campbell, a biker with a fearsome reputation, into joining the club. But it is Snoddy's part in a brawl with rival club — The Loners — that finally wins his brothers' respect... and full membership of the Comancheros.

Caesar's brothers join the Comancheros as Jock's recruiting continues. Jock's military drills are not to everyone's taste and the Campbells are showing signs of discontent. When an explosives expert, Kraut, is recruited as a nominee, the Campbells are ready to look for another club. But Snoddy calms the waters and a new clubhouse is found overlooking Sydney Harbour. The new clubhouse is a great success — until the Campbells accuse Jock of breaking his own rules. To avoid the scrutiny of a meeting, Jock splits the club into two chapters. Snoddy pledges his loyalty to Jock — which Jock rejects.

Jock is bashed in King's Cross after his bucks night — but the city chapter vote against helping to avenge him. After all, none of them were invited to his wedding to Vanessa. Tensions between the two chapters intensify to the point where Snoddy no longer feels they are part of the same club. He goes to Jock and tells him they are leaving the Comancheros to form an Australian chapter of the American Club, the Bandido Nation. Colours are returned — and burned — and Snoddy warns a new Comanchero member — Kiddo — to give his leader a message. "Tell Jock to stay out of Parramatta — or he's a dead man."

When Jock is knocked off his bike and Comancheros Dog and Sparra are bashed by the Bandidos at a suburban hotel, Jock declares war — which the Bandidos reject. But it is clear both sides are arming themselves as shots are fired at the clubhouses. Afraid for the safety of his family, Bull Campbell tries to hand in his colours but Snoddy asks him to think about it for another week. There's a 'swap meet' at Milperra the following weekend, which Snoddy declares a compulsory meeting. "If the Commos are there — we will bash them and take their colours".

A young girl, Leanne, encourages Shifty, the Sergeant at Arms for the Rebels and a friend of her sister's, to take her to the swap meet. It is going to be a great day. Though neither of the two warring clubs expect more than a show of force at such a public event, motives are misunderstood when a number of Bandidos ride by Kiddo's house. As the women prepare family barbeques, the two clubs assemble at their respective clubhouses. The Comancheros are the first to arrive at Milperra and think the Bandidos are a no-show. Then the Bandidos suddenly arrive in force catching the Comancheros unprepared and clearly outnumbered.

Caesar tries to defuse the situation and suggests they dispense with guns and "fight like men". But a shot is fired — and suddenly a tragedy is inevitable. After it's over, no one leaves, both sides feeling it was self-defence. But arrests are just a matter of time and both clubs are rounded up and sent to prison to await trial. Jock remains unrepentant, declaring himself the scapegoat. Blaming himself, Snoddy takes matters into his own hands — believing his sacrifice will save the others. It doesn't.

Jock Ross, four Comancheros and one
Bandito were found guilty of murder
and sentenced to life imprisonment.

These convictions were later set
aside on appeal and reduced to
manslaughter.

The remaining accused were
found guilty of manslaughter and
lesser offences.

None of the Milperra accused served
their full terms.

The longest serving prisoner, Jock Ross,
served five years and three
months of his sentence.
