Anybody know about the Valleymen Motorcycle Club?

Valleymen M.C. sign

A couple years back I picked up this sign at the Long Beach antique swap and have been looking for info about the Valleymen Motorcycle Club ever since.

Valleymen M.C.A Google search turns up some info, such as this page from a 1965 issue of American Motorcycling. The Valleymen M.C. out of Reseda, Calif., are listed as newly chartered AMA club. Another result is from a V-Twin Forum in which someone posts that his parents rode with the Valleymen in the 1960s. Still another is an obituary for Pauline Clarre Jennings, who, along with her husband Dean, rode with the Valleymen until he died in 1988.

I would love to know more about this sign and about the Valleymen. Anybody know anything?

    Finding out information about a MC is hard, due to biker clubs keeping information to their club members only. Good luck on this quest.

    This seems like a great research project … Right up yer alley.

    Yeah, I was hoping that someone, like in the V-twin forum post or the obit would have some info. Thanks for reading.

    Hello there. Got a response from a guy whose parents were in the Valleymen! Turns out it was a AMA Dresser club, very family oriented. Wow. This is cool stuff.

    That’s great news! Yes it is cool to discover more information and proceed to find the answers. I often wish that AMA would have much more information on all biker clubs.

    No way! I’ve been looking for someone who knew of this club for years! I would love to see some old photos. Best, Dennis
