Cast & Crew
Gay motorcyclists Michael, Dave, Henry, Arnold, Eddie and Ronnie roar down the highway on their bikes fitted with sidecars . When they stop to pick up a hitchhiker, the man, wary because of their outlaw biker appearance, at first hesitates, but then climbs into one of the sidecars. Deciding to stop at an A&W Root Beer stand for refreshments, the motorcyclists alarm the waitress when they crash into the stand's road sign, then gruffly order lunch. Meanwhile, at an estate in Los Angeles, the General, head of a covert militia organization dedicated to maintaining social order, sits in front of a big American flag listening to a tape of an inspirational speech exhorting that all "deviants, sex criminals and abusers of our freedoms be caught and dealt with under an iron hand." At the root beer stand meanwhile, as the gay gang trade double entendres, Eddie offers the hitchhiker a bite of his hot dog. His jealousy aroused, Arnold, Eddie's burly lover, starts a food fight. Realizing that he has fallen in with a group of homosexuals, the hitchhiker runs away as fast as he can. Continuing on their journey, the gay gang passes two highway patrolmen who turn on their sirens and radio headquarters that they are in pursuit of twenty to twenty-five "heavily armed" bikers. After pulling over the motorcylists, one over-zealous officer runs out of his patrol car brandishing a rifle and begins to interrogate them. The officers are flabbergasted when Henry, the gang's dress designer, announces that they are headed for Los Angeles to attend a "ladies' cotillion." Still suspicious, the officers search the bikes and are baffled when, instead of contraband, they find bras and a dress. Disgusted, the officers wave on the motorcyclists. The gay gang then stops at a roadside bar where they are set upon by dancing hookers. Taken aback, the gang hurriedly hits the road. Soon after, they stop at a picnic area, where they set a table with a linen tablecloth, fine china and a candelabra and begin their sumptuous repast. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, the General readies to "control the infiltrators" by donning a blindfold and assembling his pistol. When a group of real Hell's Angels spot the picnicking motorcyclists, they mistake them for fellow outlaw bikers and stop to ask "where are their broads." Michael, the leader of the gay gang, instructs Dave to return to the bar to "get the broads," then offers the Angels beer and champagne. At the bar, Dave herds the eager hookers into a truck and takes them to the picnic grounds where the hookers engage the Angels in an orgy that degenerates into a drunken free-for-all. After passing out, the Angels awaken the next morning to find their hair adorned with ribbons, their faces smeared with makeup and their fellow revelers gone. Furious, the head Angel vows revenge. Meanwhile, the General, still aroused by the tape-recorded speech, receives a phone call from a Senator in Washington. Reassuring the Senator that no one will ever know that a group of "law and order" government officials are financing the militia, the General promises to "nail the long-haired bastards." Upon checking into their Los Angeles hotel, the gay gang realizes that Ronnie, their willowy entry to win the grand prize at a drag ball to be held that night, has lost his gown on their arduous journey to the city. While Michael, Ronnie, Dave and Henry go out to buy Ronnie a new outfit, Arnold and Eddie order room service and are served by a bare-breasted, gum-chewing waitress who offers to sell them drugs, but they reject her wares. After buying Ronnie lipstick, perfume, a dress, shoes and a purse, the others return to the hotel to dress for the big event. Arrayed in all their finery, Ronnie and the others are entering the hotel dining room for dinner just as the Angels arrive at the hotel and terrify the desk clerk into admitting that the "cupcakes" are staying at the hotel. Charging into the dining room, the Angels see the glamorous group and, mistaking them for women, try to pick them up. After the "women" invite them to a party, they climb on the back of the Angels' bikes and ride to the estate where the ball is to be held, unaware that the General and his forces have commandeered it. Stationed along the highway, the General's minions notify him about the gang's imminent arrival. After the gang is apprehended by the militia, Henry, still in drag, is brought before the General, who, thinking that he is an innocent victim of the unsavory gang, urges him to testify against them. Mortified when Henry defiantly whips off his wig, the General orders the deviants lynched.
