Wild Wheels (1969)

Director: Ken Osborne

Writers: Ken Osborne, Ralph Luce

Composer: Harley Hatcher

Starring: Don Epperson, Robert Dix, Casey Kasem, Dovie Beams, Terry Stafford, Johenne Lemont, Bruce Kimball

More info: IMDb

Tagline: They Wreck Each Other's Wheels and Steal Each Other's Girls!!

Plot: A group of surfers use dune buggies to protect their beach from a gang of invading bikers.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

It's bad and far from so-bad-it's-good.  There's barely any action and the most you get is a brawl on the beach at the end shot at night and it's difficult to see anything.  It's just a jumbled mess.  It didn't help that the print I saw was lousy VHS quality.  Everything about this picture is at best mediocre which is probably giving it too much credit.  Some of the main characters are in a band that plays at the local bar or something and they get way too many songs to perform.  I guess they did that so they could release a soundtrack (which they did).  If you're looking for a decent biker flick, this isn't it.  I keep hoping to find a good biker flick but they are a rare breed.
