I found an English version of Joe Bar here:
Joe Bar Team Volume 1. Following are some partial scans
from that volume to give you a taste for these wondrous idiots.
Note: "Nitroglycerimethanol" is a hitherto
unknown racing fuel additive and "Rolling Burn-Out" is a noxious drink
developed at the Joe Bar... together they create serious horsepower, but
usually shortened engine life and sometimes scattered pistons.
From Amazon.com: "The First Tome
is the Best., January 10, 2004
If you are an American (like me),
you are one of the few here in the States that has even heard of these
guys. Think of them as the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers on cafe racers.
"Joe Bar" is the name of their hangout. The first Tome is our heros in
the late 70's, battling the police, Harley riders, cheap malfunctioning
J.C. Whitney electrical doodads, and each other as they scream around
Paris. Tomes 2-4 have a sketchier drawing style (which I dont like), and
jumps to the 90's where the original characters have upgraded their
bikes, adopted some new kids to continue the mayhem, and have mellowed
out some. A huge hit in Europe amongst street-fighter bikers and
cafe-racer clubs, be the first on your block to sport a sticker on your
helmet. Available in English for the first Tome only from Amazon UK."
I have never had a chance to see read this
incredibly funny stuff in English - everything here was picked off the
Internet. Enjoy. If
you happen to know of any links to ENGLISH versions of these strips, I
would be most grateful for them!

finally) about the primary artist of the strip:
