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.

Corbin Hollywood Solo for 2010-2018 H-D Sportster 48 & Sportster 72

Corbin Hollywood Solo 
for 2010-2018 H-D Sportster 48 & Sportster 72

Hollywood Solo saddle gives your Sportster a slick, low profile while providing reasonable, boulevard cruising comfort. Our Fibertech basepan provides a perfect, flowing fit along the tank, chassis and fender, but rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job. Naturally, Hollywood Solo is built up with high density Comfort Cell® foam to provide a firm resilient ride despite the incredibly low profile. It’s seats like this one that brought Mike to the development of our infinite ratio foam! 


Hollywood Solo comes standard with genuine leather seating in your choice of colors and styles. Leather seating is great for motorcycle saddles because it breathes with your body and will break in with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Quality leather is also extremely durable. Over time your saddle will age and develop a unique character just like your leather jacket and chaps do. If you care for it properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream, your leather saddle will be your riding buddy for many years. 



Hollywood solo mounts easily with a tongue in the front and a single bolt into your fender at the rear. Naturally we use a stock location so there is no drilling required and the saddle bolts right up. Notice also how the Corbin Wizard's have designed the nose of this saddle long to bridge the gap to the tank for a cleaner appearance.

ACE CAFE CELEBRATES ITS 80TH BIRTHDAY AT THE SILVERSTONE CLASSIC

ACE CAFE CELEBRATES ITS 80TH BIRTHDAY AT THE SILVERSTONE CLASSIC 

Legendary motorcycle haven pays tribute to its biker heritage
Displays, track parade plus homage styled paddock dinner
Special ticket offer for owners of classic bikes to join party
Cost-saving Early Bird tickets available until the end of March

The immortalised Ace Cafe will be celebrating its 80th anniversary in spectacular style with a huge presence at this summer’s spectacular Silverstone Classic (20-22 July).


Saluting its legendary status among motorcyclists, the Ace Cafe will recreate a special homage to its remarkable heritage at the home of British motor sport and be the iconic hub at the heart of the huge paddock display of classic bikes. Fittingly, 80 of these will be selected for an evocative track parade.

First opened in 1938 as a wayside traffic café on London’s new North Circular Road, the Ace Cafe quickly became a Mecca for bike riders, notably with the speedy ‘Ton Up Boys’ in the fifties and then the Rockers in the sixties.


With changing cultures and the opening of the M1, the original cafe closed its doors in 1969… but the story did not end there. Following the huge success of an Ace Cafe reunion organised by Mark Wilsmore in the mid-nineties, the original building was refurbished and reopened in 1997, and ever since has been attracting biker pilgrimages from all over the globe.
Bringing that magic to Silverstone, the Ace Cafe will ‘take over’ the Pit Stop Café in the circuit’s National Paddock with menus, displays, dressings and music all embracing the unique
appeal and character of the original diner in north west London.

Adding to the festivities, the setting will also be home to a massive gathering of classic motorbikes – 80 of which will take to the hallowed Silverstone Grand Prix circuit for an astounding 80th birthday track parade at lunchtime on Saturday.

To encourage all classic bike owners to join the celebrations, a special Ace Cafe Motorcycle Display package is being offered in keeping with the historic values of the event. The package includes two general admission tickets and in-field parking in the dedicated Ace Cafe display area plus free parking for support vehicles and trailers if bikes are transported to Silverstone. 
“This is a wonderful opportunity for all bike lovers to share in our 80th birthday celebr
