The origins of the Gypsy Motorcycle Club trace back to 1932, taking root in the quaint town of Maryville nestled in Eastern Tennessee. It was here that the club’s founding father, Lee Simerly, known affectionately as “Happy Jack,” established the organization. Under Happy Jack’s leadership, the club flourished, embodying the camaraderie and spirit of adventure synonymous with motorcycle culture. However, in 1948, leadership transitioned to Happy Jack’s brother Chuck, who assumed the role of president until 1960.

1960 marked a significant shift for the Gypsy Motorcycle Club as Happy Jack’s son, Papa Jack, assumed leadership and steered the organization in a new direction. Under Papa Jack’s guidance, the club relocated to Aransas Pass, marking the beginning of a tumultuous period characterized by outlaw activities. The club’s notoriety escalated during this time, attracting unwanted attention from law enforcement and the public alike, ultimately culminating in its disbandment in 1964.

In the wake of the club’s dissolution, Papa Jack and his brother Hap recognized the need for a fresh start. In 1966, they embarked on a mission to rebuild the Gypsy Motorcycle Club, this time with a renewed focus on cultivating a positive image for bikers. The journey towards redemption began with the rechartering of the club with the American Motorcycle Association in 1968, signaling a commitment to professionalism and accountability.

Since its reformation, the Gypsy Motorcycle Club has undergone a remarkable transformation, expanding its influence far beyond its Tennessee roots. With chapters spanning across Texas, Oklahoma, Mexico, Tennessee, New Mexico, and Louisiana, the club has solidified its presence as a respected and influential force within the motorcycle community. Through outreach programs, charity events, and community engagement initiatives, the Gypsy Motorcycle Club has endeavored to dispel stereotypes and foster a greater understanding of motorcycle culture.

Here, visitors can explore the club’s history, mission, and upcoming events, providing insight into the enduring legacy of this iconic organization.
