Psychopath finally got his at the end. As cool and smart as he was, it was stupid to have his girlfriend that he just dropped to get the gun. The final look on his face was priceless: shock. He had convinced himself that women couldn't hurt him. He was dead wrong (Excuse the pun).
Actually, pretty fun, in an "Oh, no, they aren't really going to do that, are they?" sort of way. Look up "Low Budget film" in the dictionary, there is a poster of this. Probably okay for its intended audience, the 1970s drive-in. People wouldn't be spending much time watching anyway.
I'm not sure why they call this movie Cycle Savages. There's very little in the way of cycles and not much for "savagery" either. Bruce Dern does his best to elevate it but it's almost as lame as Rebel Rousers and nowhere near as good as he was in The Wild Angels. Melody Patterson's (F Troop) semi-nude scenes are mild, the alleged gang-rape is bland; these guys seem a lot more like juvenile delinquents that outlaw motorcycle gang members. They're about as "savage" as Eric Von Zipper's Ratz and Mice M/C in the beach movies. And the plot...they're worried about sketches someone made of a minor scene at a fast food place? Come on, like that would really hold up in court even then. There's some really good biker movies from the 60's, but this isn't one of them. Not even any good motorcycles to redeem this.

Released in 1969, "The Cycle Savages" starts off like it might be a decent cheap biker flick in the manner of, say, "Angel Unchained" (1970). The opening credits sequence is effective and the pre-heavy metal hard rock theme is simple, but enjoyable, particularly the energetic percussion. On top of this, Bruce Dern is effective as Keeg, the ee-vil leader of Hell's Chosen Few, Chris Robinson is solid as the courageous protagonist and there are a few quality gals -- Dern's brunette babe, Sandy (Maray Ayres), and two blonds, Lea and Janie (Melody Patterson and Karen Ciral). It's also cool to check out the late 60's California locations.
Unfortunately these are the only good things I can say about this flick. The plot is really really DUMB; like it was conjured up by a 12 year-old. It involves Keeg getting upset over a sketch artist for making drawings of his gang in wild revelry. Apparently, Keeg believes the sketches can be used to convict him and his gang (Why sure!). The dialogue and acting are just as bad. At one point they put the artist's hands in a vice, threatening to crush them, but it's clear that he can remove his hands at any time.
BOTTOM LINE: I can't tell you how awful this "film" is. At least a cheapo biker flick like "The Tormentors" is entertaining and has a semi-interesting story, but "The Cycle Savages" can't even do that. It's only worthwhile for a few good-looking late 60's "chicks" and as a period-piece oddity.
The film runs 85 minutes.
PS: If you want to see a great late 60's/early 70's biker flick, catch the very first one, the infamous "The Wild Angels" from 1966 starring Peter Fonda, Bruce Dern, Nancey Sinatra and Diane Ladd. "The Wild Angels" is simultaneously shocking and profoundly brilliant (yes, even though it's essentially a Roger Corman 'B' film). See my Amazon review for full details.
