MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Latest News in the Custom Bike World

Custom Bike Show Norrtälje, Sweden

Custom Bike Show Norrtälje, Sweden

The 43rd Norrtälje Custom Bike Show - 
5.000 motorcycles in Norrtälje !

On June 3, 2017, the first Saturday in June, and for the 43rd time since the start in 1971, 
it was the time for Custom Bike Show ™. The exhibition, which has become one 
of the world's most prestigious motorcycle exhibitions for customized motorcycles 
and this year attracted about 230 exhibitors in 8 different classes. 
Top weather and 9000 spectators made it a big festival in Norrtälje.


Someone has said that "it's only old guys who ride chopper", and maybe there's a little bit of truth in that expression because there were a lot of well-known bike builders who exhibited this year's exhibition and some had probably passed the 50's. Nevertheless, the H-D chopper class was the class that attracted the most participants with 60 competitors. But the age was spread and participants were not only from Sweden but also from Norway, Finland, Denmark, the Baltic States and Germany. The winner was Sami Järvelä from Scrap Mc, Rauma in Finland.
One of the young enthusiasts was Björn Henning Larsson is from Oslo. On Friday afternoon at 13 o'clock he put the last screw on his newly built H-D chopper. Shortly thereafter he started the journey towards Norrtälje and arrived late at night until Saturday. On Saturday morning with some small adjustments he could enter the exhibition. There was no price this year - we hope he will try again next year.



Café racer is a trend among many builders
