Queensland authorities won't be fooled by bikies who claim to be abandoning their outlaw gangs, Police Minister Jack Dempsey says.

Lawyers have said senior gang members are turning in their colours and closing chapters in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast amid a savage government crackdown.

But Mr Dempsey says police and the government won't be taken for fools.

Anyone engaged in the kind of crime that's made motorcycle gangs notorious can expect to get caught, he says.

"It's not just the colours - it's the criminal activity and they will be hunted down no matter what," he said on Friday.

"I don't care whether they're wearing pink toupees or pretending to be other groups - we will make sure they go through the judicial system and do their time."

Superintendent Jim Keogh, who heads the anti-gang Taskforce Takeback, has told the ABC it's not clear how many bikies have broken away from their gangs.

But he said: "It would be foolhardy to think they wouldn't still be collaborating behind closed doors".

"I'm not going to comment until I am quite certain they are not making some sort of attempt to reform and continue their bad old ways."

"Police will continue to maintain the impetus in relation to the criminal motorcyclists - whether they are in a clubhouse or whether they are at home or whether they choose to get different premises."

Mario Vosmaer, who is a life member of the Bandidos Moorooka chapter on Brisbane's southside, has hired a lawyer to help him quit the club.

Ashkan Tai says his client has quit and will hand in his colours in Friday, and he's closing down the club's Moorooka chapter.

It's been reported three other clubs on the Gold Coast, the Finks, Rebels and Nomads, have closed their clubs and are moving interstate to escape the crackdown.
