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.

Custom Chrome Europe - Daytona Bike Week 2019 Product Bonanza

Daytona Bike Week 2019 Product Bonanza:
Innovative Ideas!

As previously reported, CCE Purchasing Director Guenther Mueller and Stephan Burg (Vendor Relations and Product Line Specialist) went head-on into the busy Bike Week schedule of custom parts displays in and around Daytona Beach, in search of new ideas and products. "Sometimes these products are somewhat "off the beaten path" and difficult to find – but after decades and decades of customizing innovation, it is an ambitious and often time-consuming task to find brand-new ideas that have never been seen before", says Mueller. Beside successful business talks to established manufacturers and CCE Partners from all over the USA, CCE's power team again succeeded in discovering many previously unknown innovators, whose products may soon grace the pages of the upcoming Custom Chrome Europe catalogue. "The decisions for go or no go will be made in our product meeting of April 1st, which then will move forward the production or order of these great new parts", adds Burg, who thought has seen it all: "The creativity and sometimes almost stunning ignorance of physical laws never fail to impress me. There is always something new to see at Daytona Bike Week!" Here are some of the new items for the upcoming product meeting:

"Gunner" Exhaust System
New and innovative exhaust system with "quick exchange" filter cartridge. CCE was already successful in reserving quantities of cartridge boxes for individual customizing or "Bolt On" straight "from the box". EURO 4-8 in development, but no problem thanks to the patented system to change filters.
