The Forgotten Motorcycle Club (FMC) is an outlaw motorcycle club originating from Eugene, Oregon in the United States of America. It allegedly has its roots as early as the late 1940s as a riding club for veterans of the 41st Infantry Division. It then was officially established in January 1979 by senior members of the riding club.

 

History


The Forgotten MC was formed on the 16th of January, 1979, in Eugene, Oregon a few years after the end of the Vietnam War. However allegedly the MC tracks its origins all the way back to the late 1940s and early 1950s as a riding club comprised of post-WWII veterans primarily out of the 41st infantry who struggled to find work and structure in American society. The name seemingly inspired by that very feeling of abandonment amongst veterans.

 

At some point in the early to mid-1980s the club transitioned from a club exclusively for veterans into a more open door policy and a 1% club after being allowed the diamond by a bigger club in their home state of Oregon. As the doors opened to most interested the club began to grow in size, making their second chapter in Oregon in 1987 and by the late 1990s and beginning 2000s the Forgotten MC had several chapters in Oregon. In 2010 the club then expanded into San Andreas with their first chapter in San Fierro, San Andreas and by 2021 they made the leap to set up a chapter on the edge of Los Santos in the little town of Paleto.

 

Membership


Somewhat uniquely for its time the Forgotten MC never has officially made by-laws in regards to race or religion. That said it has historically been a predominantly Caucasian Americans of Christian heritage that has been amongst its membership.

OOC: The Forgotten MC is a fully fictional MC that aims to focus on creating the best possible growth, involvement and engagement for all the players who seek to join. We have a strong believe in the progress of the character in their daily life as much as the MC itself. As such we endeavor to build a strong nucleus of the brotherhood within that creates a good scene and vibrant life beyond that of simply: "I am a biker, so therefore I ride bikes." It is of utmost importance to us that this is a faction that is equally enjoyable for prospect and ol' lady to officers within.
 
Furthermore we hope to engage and have meaningful interactions with the rest of the MC scene as much as possible across different groups and factions.
 
Inquiries and questions may be directed towards @JBranmuffins or @Sir Kydric and we will try to help you out as best we can.
