The untold story of the Comanchero: How slain boss Mahmoud 'Mick' Hawi seized control of Australia's most notorious bikie gang at just 21 by BASHING its old-school founder and turning it into a high-tech Middle Eastern crime empire

  • The 37-year-old father-of-two was shot dead outside at Rockdale gym last week 
 

The history of the Comanchero motorcycle club covers half a century but can be told through the stories of just two violent men: Mahmoud 'Mick' Hawi and Jock Ross.

Ross was the gruff Glasgow-born former soldier who founded the club on the New South Wales Central Coast with four other motorcycle enthusiasts on April 15, 1966.

Hawi was the Beirut-born onetime show pony shot dead aged 37 in his Mercedes SUV after leaving a gym at Rockdale, in southern Sydney, on February 15.

Ross, the Comanchero's self-styled 'supreme commander', led the gang into the 1984 Milperra Massacre, in which four of his men as well as two Bandidos and a 14-year-old girl died.

Hawi, as the gang's 'national president', was in control when the Comanchero bashed a Hells Angels associate to death inside Sydney Airport in 2009.

Ross and Hawi were responsible for two of the most horrifying bikie incidents in the nation's history and brought more police attention on outlaw motorcycle gangs than anyone else.

The point the Comanchero moved from being bike-riding white yobbos to a multicultural organised criminal group can be traced to when Ross and Hawi violently crossed paths.
