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.

Wide, sculpted seating positions create a larger area of contact for excellent weight distribution. Shaped like your body to eliminate pressure points and give long lasting support that will keep you in the saddle all day. 




The all new, lower chassis of Harley's new Baggers gave us additional design latitude for developing a perfected shape and good ground reach.

MS ARTRIX - STUDIO ARTISTICO

MS ARTRIX - STUDIO ARTISTICO

Max, owner and builder at MS Artrix, Italy

At the Verona Motor Bike Expo in Italy, one of the biggest and best Custom Bike Shows in Europe, we had a brief moment to to talk to Max, owner, builder and painter of the World famous MS Artrix Bikes. Long, low and graciously formed Custom Bikes that won many prizes and awards in Italy and Europe, decorate his stand. Max, dressed in typical Italian style, does not represent the Biker-look, he looks more like a designer and that’s exactly what he is. 


Max started designing and custom painting Bikes in 1995. But painting alone wasn’t enough for Max, who realized that he wanted to be more involved in the whole bike building experience. “It was a long process, but after many years, in which I learneda lot, I started building one-off Custom Bikes. That was in 2006, when I built my First custom for a client.” It was an instant succes story. Magazines spread the word and showed his pieces of rolling art, his bikes attended various bike shows and MS Artrix became a succesfull and famous builder.    




Max, who used to be working in Construction, builds unique, one of a kind and one-off bikes, still does the painting all by himself too and the owner of World Famous fashion company Fendi, with a keen eye for fashion and perfection, commissioned a motorcycle at MS Artrix. Signore Fendi was so happy with that bike, that he recently ordered another one to be build at MS Artrix.
