Biker funeral in Montreal attended by hundreds of Hells Angels, surrounded by police

While he was involved in a bloody war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine, André (Frisé) Sauvageau received a phone call he probably hadn’t thought possible.

It was Dec. 19, 2000, and Sauvageau, a founding member of the Rock Machine, had spent the previous six years looking over his shoulder as the two groups fought over drug-trafficking turf in Montreal. Police never identified the person on the other end of the line, but the call came from a cellphone owned by Richard (Dick) Mayrand, who was at the time one of the most powerful Hells Angels in Quebec.

During the call, Sauvageau was told that, as far as the Hells Angels were concerned, “the door (was) always open” to him. He defected to the Hells soon after and remained a member of the gang till his death May 26.

The H-D Dyna (Soft-tails) were stolen from outside a hotel near Rainton

The story which has been shared widely on social media has attracted attention for the sheer brazen nature in which the bikes were taken (the Hells Angels are known for never contacting the police about such matters and prefer to employ their own kind of justice) as it would’ve been easily noticed that the bikes belonged to the Hells Angels, as both bikes wore the famous Death Head motif that is synonymous with the group.

Stuart Hack shared a post in the UK Motorcycle Theft Protest group on Facebook purporting to be from one of the group. It read:

‘STOLEN LAST NIGHT, 2 Harley Davidson Dynas.
