When Sonny Barger formed the Oakland Hells Angels in 1957, a few miles up East 14th Street in East Oakland, a young black bike rider form Louisiana named Tobie Gene Levingston was soon to follow in Bargers footsteps. The two knew and respected each other and had ridden their Harleys together in the same East Bay neighborhood. In 1959, Tobie Gene organized the Dragons, a loosely knit, all-black mens club, one of the first of its kind. The dragons earliest incarnation began as an all-black car club. It originally stemmed from Tobie Genes big brother role to keep his younger brothers and friends occupied and out of trouble.

The Dragons became ten strong, including members like MacArthur, Hooker, Tobies brothers Joe Louis and Jonas, Baby Joe, Sam and Cousin Rabbit. Tobie Gene became the East Bay Dragons MCs first and only president, still reigning and riding after forty-four years.
