Darryl Lewis was a small time crook who did a big time crime. This brought him to the attention of the Finks Motorcycle Club. The then president of the Beenleigh Chapter, Stephen Cranney was a man who would not tolerate the thieving of his beloved Harley Davidson motorbike.
In November 1996, eighteen very hairy and very pissed off bikers descended on Darryl Lewis’ semi rural property in Queensland, like a lava rain from hell, determined to get the bike back and reap a terrible and bloody revenge.
