History of KNK M.C.
The history of KNK stemmed from BJ working on a motorcycling documentary called Throttle & Chrome for the past three years with Big Gig. BJ came up with the name Throttle & Chrome for the movie and both Gig and BJ had become inspired while filming to start their own traditional M.C. club. Since the name Throttle & Chrome had grown on them, they decided to call the club the same name. However, for creative purposes along with not wanting to have any confusion with another club with a similar name, they decided to call it Klutch N Khrome M.C. Using the two K’s just looked better creatively for the logo, rather than using T and C.
The documentary covers everything from what an M.C. is and means, 1 percent, the importance of unity, riding safe, what custom is, how much, the first club that influenced the younger generation of Harley riders, the female independent rider, bragging rights, black history, motorcycle history, and the forming of Klutch N Khrome. BJ made the documentary because of his love for motorcycles, his city, heritage, and passion for telling stories. A story of this magnitude had not been done on the Chicago black bike culture and BJ wanted to tell the story.
