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.

Hawg Halters 2014 Touring bike neck rake kits

Hawg Halters 2014 Touring bike neck rake kits

HAWG Halters Inc. (HHI) is continuing to expand its product offering for riders and builders wanting to run large front wheels on Touring models, with the introduction of its Neck Rake Builders kit for 2014 Touring bikes fitted with 49mm front ends.



The new kit, said to offer optimum set-up for performance and handling, features a seven-degree neck rake, and nine-degree triple trees. The kit is designed to utilize the upgraded larger H-D production neck bearings, which HHI includes in the kit.


HHI’s 49mm neck and rake kit takes the advantages of its latest 49mm triple tree design and enhances the updated triple clamp from H-D. HHI says this triple tree design allows it to deliver maximum fork rigidity and superior handling responses.



HHI now offers complete 21, 23, 26 and 30in conversion kits. These kits include ‘X 23 Bolt-On Triple Tree Kits’ or the ‘Custom Neck Rake Builders Kits’ for 23, 26 and 30in builds in both. In addition HHI supplies billet fender brackets, US-made, onepiece, wrap-around fenders in raw or black for 21, 23, 26 and 30in styles, D.O.T. brake lines, custom wheel and tire combinations in most popular sizes, which include matching true floating brake rotors in 11.5, 11.8, 13in, and now the new BFBK 18in direct bolt on caliper and rotor kits.



Mark Thompson, seen here on the right, has seen his product line continue to grow throughout the downturn, indeed consistently ever since he started the business in 1999. The company collaborates very closely with Californian wheel specialist Renegade, being the recommended brake calliper and accessory brand of choice for Renegade’s wheels and rotors – if you haven’t seen them yet check out their new direct Bolt-on four piston differential bore callipers for 11.8 inch rotors.
