TELEPHONE intercepts reveal the Finks' rise to power was inspired by the Mafia and the so-called Carlton Crew.
The Carlton Crew, which included Alphonse Gangitano, Mick Gatto and Jason Moran, were exposed in TV series Underbelly.
Documents also show that infamous Myspace bikie Tama Lewis has emerged as a key player in the outlaw gang's iron grip of the Glitter Strip.
Court documents reveal Lewis, real name Darren James Watson, had a meteoric rise through the ranks of the Surfers Paradise chapter as the right hand of Finks sergeant-at-arms Greg Keating, aka 25.
Keating rose to power in 2006, becoming one of the club's youngest sergeant-at-arms -- and with him rose a young crew including Tama Lewis, who became a full member in 2006.
The pair led the club from the 1996 blunder that saw much of the old guard jailed over a savage bashing murder and helped transform it from what police called "minor criminal offences" into the most feared gang on the nightclub strip.
Tama Lewis became one of the most brazen members, labelled by authorities as the "charming psychopath".
He has the word "terror" tattooed on one arm, and "team" on the other, and once kicked a security door out of its frame during a home invasion in 2009.
That same year, he pleaded guilty after a .45 calibre semi-automatic pistol and a magazine loaded with seven .45 calibre bullets were found at his Gold Coast unit, along with a used syringe and needle and empty steroid vial.
In 2007, police found a set of knuckledusters, a set of nunchaku, a stun gun and flick knife at his Oxenford home.
