Until the post-World War II period, motorcycling held a prestigious position and enjoyed a positive image in British society. Starting in the 1950s, the middle classes were able to buy inexpensive motorcars, and motorcycles became transport for the poor. The rocker subculture came about due to factors such as: the end of post-war rationing in the UK, a general rise in prosperity for working class youths, the recent availability of credit and financing for young people, the influence of American popular music and films, the construction of race track-like roads around British cities, the development of transport cafes and a peak in British motorcycle engineering.World War IImiddle classesworking class credit Characteristics
Rockers bought standard factory-made motorcycles and stripped them down, tuning them up and modifying them to appear like racing bikes. Rockers wore heavily-decorated leather motorcycle jackets, often adorned with metal studs, patches, pin badges and sometimes an Esso gas man trinket. Other common items included: T-shirts, leather caps, Levi's or Wrangler jeans, leather trousers, tall motorcycle bootsEssoLevi'sWranglerjeans Cultural legacy
