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.

S&S Cycle Stealth Air Cleaner

S&S Cycle Stealth Air Cleaner 
Stealth air cleaner kits now CARB compliant

S&S Cycle has announced that it has been issued with an Executive Order (EO # D-355-11) by the California Air Resources Board, which allows S&S Stealth air cleaners to be installed on Delphi EFI equipped Harley-Davidson ’36-’14 Big Twins and ’57-’13 Sportster models.

All S&S Stealth air cleaner kits for 2001-up EFI models now come with a special sticker and instructions for applying it to an inconspicuous location on the frame. So, if for some reason a rider does get stopped, there is proof that the S&S Stealth air cleaner is legal. 

The S&S Stealth air cleaners feature an air directional stinger cone in the filter, which is said to direct air smoothly into the bore of the carburetor or EFI throttle body for reduced turbulence and increased flow. The air cleaner can be used with the stock H-D Twin Cam 88, 96 or 103 air cleaner cover, or can be used with any of several S&S designed covers. High flow (1in taller) filter kits are also available.
