We are the original Warlocks MC 1%er Phila Motorcycle Club founded in 1964 as a 1%er MC but existed before 1964 as a community group of men called the Warlords in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. The original Club patch was a left facing Black Dragon center patch with red/gold wings on a natural white background. An upper rocker with the "WARLOCKS" in a special font across it. The bottom rocker consisted of the word "Phila" which established where the club was founded. Both upper and lower rockers were in Red font with a natural white background. Have a look at the magazine picture dated October 1967 (In photo gallery below, and it will show that the patch at that time was the Black dragon.
The club voted to change it's patch to the Harpy and Banner style upper rocker on a denim cut in the late 1968.. A split among the club members occurred also in the early 1970's between the mother charter and the New Jersey charter. The mother charter and those remaining with the mother charter went to a black leather cut bearing the same Harpy center patch and Banner style upper rocker. The New Jersey Charter kept the denim cut.
The Harpy and Banner style Upper rocker have been trademarked by 2 different entities since the middle 1990's. The Harpy Center patch and banner style Rockers are no longer the recoginized colors of the Original Warlocks 1%er MC Phila Nation.
The ONLY recognized patch for The Original Warlocks MC 1%er Phila Nation is the original 3 piece patch with the Center patch being that of a black dragon , top rocker with “Warlocks” in a unique font , and bottom rocker bearing the word “Phila” to pay homage to where our club was founded.
The patch is trademarked and belongs to the brotherhood of the club!!
The Original Warlocks MC 1%er Phila has never been part of nor subscribed to any National or State COC.
While the Original Warlocks MC 1%er Phila don't claim territory, we pay homage to where our club was founded and thus all patch members wear the "Phila" bottom Rocker (with the exception of Nomads).
We have never claimed "Territory" and we continue to not claim any "Territory".
Lately there has been much media attention given to the Original Warlocks MC 1 %er Phila.
The Original Warlocks 1%er MC Phila has standing Bylaws that we adhere to, that prohibit any member to speak with the media/Social Media as well as law enforcement in regards to any club business. The Individual (s) who have been speaking to the Media/Social Media or Law enforcement are not representatives of this club and may be with another club or may have even been with this club in years past. If the latter is true these individual (s) do not speak on behalf of this club.
The Harpy center Patch and Banner style rockers are no longer the legitmate patch of the Original Warlocks 1%er MC Phila ( "Philly Warlocks") This patch was replaced by club vote in August 2019 with the trademarked original Patch from 1964 of the Black Dragon as pictured on this page. The club recognizing that the Harpy patch was owned by an LLC which was owned by a woman, the total unaccountability of the Harpy Patch, and the negative direction the club had taken, precipitated this vote.
While there are still a few individuals that wear the Harpy colors. These individuals do not speak for the club in any way and none of them are sanctioned by the Original Warlocks MC 1%er Phila nor any chapters/charters that wear the Harpy patch.
