The group was formed in Orrington in the late 1960s — when it was originally known as Iron Coffins — and became Maine’s first motorcycle club, Gould said. Since then, it has formed into three chapters, Gould said, who declined to say how many members there were.

“It’s a man’s club. We get together and ride motorcycles. It’s a brotherhood. My brothers are my family,” he said.

Saturday’s procession will begin after a memorial service for Bowley held at the Brewer Chapel at Brookings-Smith on Main Street, starting at 11 a.m.

In addition to his daughter Dawn, Bowley is survived by his wife of 50 years, Ellen Bowley.
