He was recently accused of grinding down identification numbers on the motorcycle’s engine and transmission, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
Robert Patrick Wilson, a 31-year-old Ocala resident and Outlaws member, was charged with two felony counts of possession of a vehicle with altered vehicle identification numbers, according to a press release Wednesday from the sheriff’s office.
Wilson has been locked up at the Flagler County jail since his arrest Oct. 15 when deputies said he was riding at between 70 mph and 120 mph as he fled from attempted traffic stops, according to a charging affidavit and press release. He was finally arrested when his Harley ran out of gas on State Road 100 west of Bunnell.
Wilson was originally being held on $18,000 bond, but with the additional charges, his bond is $28,000.
The sheriff’s office was processing the motorcycle for forfeiture when it discovered the engine and transmission’s vehicle identification numbers had been ground off, the release stated.

The sheriff’s office used a chemical solution to reveal the grinded-off number, the release stated.
Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly stated in the release that it appeared Wilson took the engine from a 2016 Harley-Davidson he still owed money on and put it on the 2009 Harley-Davidson he was riding when he was arrested, according to the release.
Wilson and another man co-owned both motorcycles but the other man died last year, the release stated.
The Outlaws Motorcycle Club is included in Department of Justice information about motorcycle gangs which the department described as organizations whose members engage in violent crime and weapons and drug trafficking.
Wilson is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 24 for a pre-trial hearing.
