Depleted Finks hit back after a change to their emblem prompted claims they had become a supporter club for violent Comanchero Outlaw Motorcycle Club

UPDATE: THE Finks have come out fighting after reports the gang had become a feeder club for the violent southern gang the Comancheros.

The reports came after the Finks rebranded their image, changing their infamous Bung emblem from a happy drunk to a gun-toting, steroid-pumped gangster.

However, a senior member of the club claimed the Finks was an individual club but the relationship was a “brotherhood.”

“We ride together, we want to stay strong and stay Australian,” he said.

The Sydney sergeant-at-arms claims the clubs has been desperately recruiting after the massive Mongol patchover.

He said the dramatic change of Bung to from a “drunk” to toting and hand gun was a direct message to ex-members who patched over to the Mongols.

“That’s why we wanted to change. It’s a get stuffed to the Mongols basically. That was just for them,” he said.

He said he was happy to see the back the members who had patched over, particularly the Queensland chapter who were “nothing but trouble makers”.

“They were bad for our image,” he said.

“There’s no point until the laws are changed.

“We’ll see what happens after that.”


EARLIER: NOTORIOUS bikie gang the Finks have re-emerged from the criminal wilderness as a support club for the violent Comanchero club.

The Finks have rebranded their colours with the Bung emblem morphing from a happy drunk with a bottle of moonshine to a gun-toting, steroid-pumped gangster.

The move to harden the club’s image comes after its numbers were decimated when 95 per cent of members patched over to the US powerhouse gang the Mongols in October last year.

The new-look Finks now have only a handful of members, call the Comancheros a “brother club” and have rebranded the southern clubhouses with Finks and Comanchero colours with two pumped up arms holding hands.

Insiders say the move is designed to save the Finks from extinction, with the club virtually reduced to being a feeder club. It also gives the Comancheros an advantage if the Queensland Government’s bikie laws are overturned.

Bikies are set to challenge the VLAD legislation, lodging an appeal in Australia’s High Court in March, with no date set for the hearing.

Among the attacks on the validity of the laws, the challenge will contest the anti-association legislation used to arrest Brisbane librarian Sally Kuether as well as the laws removing discretionary power from Queensland’s judiciary.


Do you think the VLAD laws should be overturned?


“They will be trying to get into Queensland,” police sources said. “Make no mistake. The Comancheros will be eyeing off Queensland if the laws are overturned.

“Everyone is waiting to see if the laws withstand the test. If they don’t, the gangs will be back in a heartbeat and will all be fighting for territory.”

Rapid Action Policing commander Jim Keogh said the Fink rebranding appeared to be nationwide.

“It really is a huge change from the origins of the gang with Bung with a beer bottle to a gun,” Supt Keogh said.


The Finks — once the dominant outlaw bikie gang in Australia — have changed their colours as they become little more than a support club for the Commanchero bikie gang
