New Langley biker club has links to Hells Angels: police

The Street Reapers were formed late last year and have been seen in Fort Langley.

A new motorcycle gang police say is affiliated with the Hells Angels has established itself around Fort Langley.

Members of the Street Reapers motorcycle club were reportedly spotted at the funeral of slain Hells Angel Chad Wilson in Maple Ridge on Saturday.

“The Street Reapers are actually a motorcycle club that are closely associated and have close ties to the Hardside chapter of the Hells Angels,” said Sgt. Brenda Winpenny, spokesperson for the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU), an anti-gang policing unit.

The Hardside Hells Angels chapter is based near Langley as well, in the Port Kells area of Surrey.

The Street Reapers appear to have come into existence in late 2017, a little more than a year ago, said Winpenny.

“We have noticed them at several of the Hells Angel ride events over the summer of 2018,” she said.

Hells Angel Chad Wilson recalled 'terror' he felt before shootout with rivals

(video) --- The man murdered Sunday in Maple Ridge was involved in 2006 gunfight with members of the Outlaw gang in South Dakota

Hells Angel Chad Wilson got nervous when he noticed the ball cap of “a big burly dude” entering the convenience store where he was looking at souvenir fridge magnets.

The hat said “F — k the other team” and he knew right away that the man was from the rival Outlaw motorcycle gang.

The message on the hat was “directed towards us,” Wilson would later testify at his trial for attempted murder. “It’s about the Hells Angels.”

Wilson, who was found murdered in Maple Ridge on Sunday, and his biker buddy John Midmore were in South Dakota for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August 2006 when they decided to take a drive around the area in Wilson’s pickup.
