The Lost Motorcycle Club is an outlaw motorcycle club operating primarily out of Acter in the state of Alderney in 2008, but nationally (including Los Santos and Blaine County, San Andreas) in 2013. By 2013, they are active on both the east and west coasts, as well as the Midwest. The Liberty chapter president (former vice president) Johnny Klebitz is the protagonist in The Lost and Damned.
According to The Lost website, The Lost began in 1964 with eight US marines who met in Hanoi, Vietnam. After the war ended, they had a continued thirst for drugs and violence. Because of this, they started the club and named it 'The Lost' in honour of all their friends who had been killed in the war.
At the beginning of The Lost and Damned, the protagonist Johnny Klebitz is the acting president in the absence of Billy Grey, who had been incarcerated for drug charges. The clubhouse is located in Acter, but neighbouring Berchem is also considered Lost MC turf.
Prominent members of the Liberty chapter included the chapter's president Billy Grey, vice president Johnny Klebitz, treasurer Jim Fitzgerald, secretary Brian Jeremy, road captain Clay Simons, and sergeant-at-arms Terry Thorpe. Other noteworthy members were Jason Michaels and Angus Martin, as well as old ladies Leila Sharpe and Ashley Butler.
Even though he is a member of The Lost MC, after some of Brian's faction was killed in End of Chapter, Johnny refers to the chapter as a group of Alderney pisslickers.
The Lost MC also has a presence in Broker, Liberty City, although they are apparently subordinate to the Liberty chapter leadership in Acter. In 2008, Johnny met up with six bikers from The Lost's Broker detachment on the Broker Bridge. Jason also called for help to the Broker chapter when hired gun Niko Bellic attacked him.
The Liberty chapter also appears in GTA Chinatown Wars, with members appearing as enemies in several missions.
Los Santos chapter
Sometime after the events of The Lost and Damned, some members of the Liberty chapter moved west to Blaine County. Here they established a base in Stab City. The Lost's presence grew throughout the county, however drug use became an issue within the gang. Johnny Klebitz, the President became addicted to methamphetamine, supplied to him by Trevor Philips. Johnny's girlfriend, Ashley, also continued her addiction, supplementing payments with sex, much to Johnny's grievance.
The Lost's primary businesses became the illegal distribution of firearms and drugs. This caused tension between them and Trevor, as it hindered his chances of expanding his empire.
After Johnny confronted Trevor about him sleeping with Ashley again, Trevor had a violent outburst - partly fueled by news that Michael Townley was still alive - after pushing Johnny to the ground with ease, due to Johnny's meth addiction considerably weakening him, he stamped on his head until he died. Knowing The Lost would hit back, he launched a preemptive attack, killing Terry Thorpe and Clay Simons, as well as clearing out The Range and Stab City. Ashley overdosed on crack soon after.
Trevor later returned to Stab City after The Lost trashed his trailer, this time armed with explosives. He blew up four trailers, killing many bikers. This further weakened The Lost. Despite all this however, The Lost have maintained a weakened presence in Blaine County. They also have a clubhouse in East Vinewood.
According to The Underbelly Of Paradise, the Lost MC is active on both the east and west coasts and in the Midwest by 2013. Prior to going national, the Liberty chapter (incorporating Acter in Alderney and Broker in Liberty City) was the entirety of the Lost.

- Harper died in 2006 in a meth lab explosion. He had previously lost one of his ears in 2003 to a similar explosion. As told by The Lost website, he "didn't sell to homos - which is rare in this world of hypocrites and sellouts," suggesting The Lost are homophobic (though, unlike the Angels of Death, they are not racist and have befriended the Uptown Riders).

- Jim Fitzgerald is killed by Niko Bellic after an extended motorcycle chase. Johnny describes him as "the man we all wanted to be".
- Billy Grey is arrested during a botched heroin deal, and was about to turn state's evidence on Johnny Klebitz and Angus Martin when Johnny and other Lost members broke into the prison and executed Billy.
- The Lost's Acter clubhouse is heavily damaged by Ray Boccino, and then burned down by the remaining members of the Liberty chapter to "put it out of its misery."

- It is mentioned that The Lost and the Angels of Death are in a war similar to the one between (names not mentioned, only Los Santos) the Grove Street Families and the Ballas. It should also be noted The Lost and their bitter rivals the Angels of Death hate each other just as much as the Grove Street Families and Ballas do.
- It is very notable that The Lost Clubhouse resembles the Hells Angels New York Clubhouse. It has matching walls, doors and it's compact design is a match.
- The Lost are based on the Outlaws MC as referenced by The Lost's bitter rivalry with the Angels of Death who are in turn based on the Hells Angels. This rivalry parallels the real-life feud between the Outlaws and the Hells Angels. More proof of this is that The Lost MC's motto 'The Almighty Forgives, The Lost don't' is clearly based on the Outlaws MC motto 'The Almighty Forgives, Outlaws don't', also there is a real life motorcycle club called "The Lost Brotherhood MC" .
- There have been ten presidents of The Lost MC's Liberty chapter (the last two being Billy Grey and Johnny Klebitz).
- Billy Grey and Brian Jeremy were convicted of the same crime in the same year (murder in 1989). It's possible it was a two-man job and it might explain why Brian is so loyal to Billy.
- It's possible that members of The Lost are extorting or are employed by Globe Oil's offices in Berchem, Alderney, as Johnny refers to their rear parking lot as "Lost MC turf" during the mission "Liberty City Choppers".
- If the player looks at the memorial wall inside the clubhouse they can see that one of the fallen Lost members uses an Angels of Death model.
- Niko Bellic, Luis Fernando Lopez, Huang Lee, Trevor Philips, and even Johnny Klebitz have fought against the gang:
- Niko killed a few members in No Love Lost and No Way on the Subway on orders of Mikhail Faustin and Ray Boccino respectively (this resulted in the deaths of Jason Michaels and Jim Fitzgerald).
- Luis killed dozens of members in Frosting on the Cake when they disrupted the deal.
- Huang killed a few members on orders from Lester in order to secure Lester's position as a Triad mole in The Angels of Death.
- Trevor killed Johnny Klebitz, Terry Thorpe, Clay Simons, and many other members for ransacking his trailer and breaking his Impotent Rage statue, and to take control of their arms dealing business.
- Johnny, Jim, Clay, and Terry killed the members under Brian's leadership in End of Chapter and Bad Standing for betraying Johnny.
- After Johnny, Terry, Clay and Angus burn down the clubhouse, it was thought (but has been proven incorrect) that the Liberty chapter was disbanded, as they had no headquarters and lost too many members to carry the chapter on, although you can still find some members after Get Lost in Gang Wars. The club is also present in Chinatown Wars, set a year after the events of TLAD.
- Like the FX Television show "Sons of Anarchy" the founders of the club are Vietnam War veterans.
- In GTA IV, TBoGT, Chinatown Wars, and GTA V, The Lost MC are the protagonists' enemies, but in The Lost and Damned, The Lost MC are allies, this is due to the fact that Johnny Klebitz (the player character in The Lost and Damned) is vice president (later president) of the Liberty chapter. Members of The Lost will come to Johnny's aid as well as attacking any pedestrians that attack, or are attacked by, Johnny.
- It was first hinted that the Lost MC will make a return in GTA V in the GTA V Trailer #2, as a black Burrito bearing a symbol used by The Lost Motorcycle Club can be seen. Also in Trevor's trailer, he is seen hitting a member of The Lost, and their logo is seen, when Trevor is firing his weapon. This gave strong proof to the fact that The Lost will appear in GTA V, the club has either formed a chapter in Los Santos or relocated to the city.
- Although they are enemies, in TBoGT, members of The Lost can be spotted outside The Angels of Death's clubhouse.
- After Johnny's death, members of The Lost will shoot at Trevor on sight when he drives past them.
- It is possible that The Lost have some sort of working relationship with the Marabunta Grande; during the multiplayer mission "Club Business", one of the tasks given mentions an arms deal "with the Salvadorans". As Marabunta Grande is a Salvadoran gang, it is possible that these were the Salvadorans mentioned.
- In a random event triggered on a farm in south eastern Grand Senora Desert, just north of La Fluente Blanca in Vinewood Hills, Michael or Franklin can pick up a Lost biker and get in a police chase. The biker will mention that in Sandy Shores, they are having problems with the Aztecas and "some crazy meth dealer" (Trevor). In addition, in Los Santos, the Vagos have been troublesome as well.
- Regardless of which character you play as, The Lost will remain hostile. Even if you simply walk up to them at Hookie's or their hideout in East Vinewood. In some cases, they'll attack you even in Stab City.
