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.

STEL Orthopedie in Vries.wint Ondernemingsprijs

De tweejaarlijkse Ondernemingsprijs Gemeente Tynaarlo is deze keer toegekend aan orthopedisch instrumentmakerij STEL Orthopedie in Vries.
 
Dinsdagavond 4 november mochten de genomineerden, New Nexus (Tynaarlo), Kompas (Zuidlaren) en Stel Orthopedie (Vries) via een slotpresentatie een gooi naar de begeerde titel doen.
In De Melkfabriek in Bunne, voor een bomvolle zaal met belangstellenden, maakte daarna de deskundige jury de uitslag bekend: "And the winner is, .... STEL Orthopedie uit Vries". Stel Orthopedie is ook partner in het landelijk befaamde project Motor Mobiliteit voor Gehandicapten en is onderdeel van het samenwerkingsverband Bewegingsvisie. De trotse eigenaar/directeur Jaap Hartsema mocht, toegejuicht door zijn enthousiaste supporters, de wisselprijs (de LAURA) in ontvangst nemen.



Een terechte keuze, want Stel Orthopedie is in hoge mate innovatief bezig en verwierf landelijke (en internationale) faam en media-aandacht met een aantal opmerkelijke producten en projecten.
De vaak zeer creatieve oplossingen die hier bedacht worden voor mensen met mobiliteitsproblemen ontstijgen ver het gemiddelde wat op dit vakgebied geboden wordt.

Met een gedreven team van een tiental medewerkers worden cliënten uit de regio, maar ook van vér daarbuiten, geholpen met hun problemen en handicaps.
Ook veel topsporters, waaronder meerdere paralympiërs, zoeken hun heil bij Stel Orthopedie om op het allerhoogste niveau te kunnen meedraaien.
De kunstledematen (prothesen, orthesen, braces, correctiezolen, corsetten, etc) worden met zorg, vrijwel altijd op maat, voor de individuele gebruiker bedacht en gemaakt.
Zo levert bijvoorbeeld het in eigen huis ontwikkelde en vervaardigde mechanische grijpsysteem Free Lock ongekende mogelijkheden voor gehandicapte motorrijders en fietsers.
Orthopedische hulpmiddelen geven in veel gevallen mensen hun mobiliteit en zelfstandigheid terug en leveren daarmee een belangrijke bijdrage aan het levensgeluk van de gebruiker.

Krazy Horse create Ace 1200 CR Street Special

Krazy Horse create Ace 1200 CR Street Special

KRAZY Horse, the Suffolk, UK-based custom shop and regular World Championship competitor, is collaborating with Ace Cafe London's Stonebridge Motor Company, to build 11 hand-made cafe racer bikes to celebrate 110 years of Harley-Davidson (one for each decade) and 75 years of Ace Cafe London.



Krazy Horse has developed the Limited Edition Ace 1200 CR Street Special in close association with Ace Cafe London's Stonebridge Motor Company (StoMoCo). The bike is based around a 1,200cc V-twin engine from H-D, which is mounted in a Norton 'featherbed' style wide-line frame built especially for the project. Fully detailed with high gloss black powder coated cylinder heads, primary cover, cut down timing case and an Ace Cafe Racer points cover, the engine breathes through an S&S Cycle Super E carburetor, and exits gases via a polished stainless-steel, handmade exhaust system.


A six-plate clutch ensures power is transferred to the five-speed gearbox; and stainless steel wheel spokes, polished aluminum hubs and specialist tires guarantee the bike's handling. Commenting on the creation of the limited edition machine, Krazy Horse owner and MD Paul Beamish said: "This is the ultimate tribute to Harley - the art of custom at its ultimate best. The new Ace 1200CR Street Special will be for petrol-heads everywhere who want to own something that is contemporary with a seriously vintage theme. But there will only be a very limited number made - so people will have to be quick to get one."

"The bike is light, nimble and fast making it a true cafe racer. People who ride these bikes will know the true feeling of freedom, power, torque and sheer excitement. It will combine classic styling with unfettered engineering excellence."

"This new bike will most definitely be a collector's item, but it will be at its very best when it's on the road, doing what It does best," says Mark Wilsmore, MD of Ace Cafe London. "Built in England and powered by America, its timeless lines and raw power combines with effortless handling and exhilarating performance. Combining the very best of the US and Britain, we are delighted to be able to bring you a ton-up legend, celebrating Harley-Davidson and Ace Cafe London, bringing you a beautiful new ride - the Ace Cafe Racer."

This bike is the fourth to come from the Ace Cafe, London, Stonebridge Motor Company stable. Previous models include the Cafe Racer Classic (Little Miss Dynamite), the Ace 904S Thruxton Special and the Ace 675CR Street Triple Special.
