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.

Motor Bike Expo Verona 2014 Winner „Klassy 9“ by Kenji Nagai, Cycle Kraft

„Klassy 9“ by Kenji Nagai, Cycle Kraft

Kenji Nagai is one of the great customizers from Japan who’s parts are in high demand all over the globe. Few people would expect that this super-radical custombike is based on a stock 
Harley-Davidson frame and engine – a fact which he underlined when Kenji approached to nominate the bike.

As in some of these cases before – with the frame based on a stock Harley-Davidson chassis (minus the swingarm) – the bike was nominated for both categories – which would usually divide the votes from the judges rather than giving the bike more choices. But not with a bike of this excellence! All the selected high class judges, selected from customizers from the USA and international Custombike Journalists made the bike  their choice – enough for each category for a clean win! Extraordinary!

West Coast Motors ontvangt prestigieuze Bar & Shield Award 2013

Authorized Harley-Davidson Dealer West Coast Motors ontvangt prestigieuze Bar & Shield Award 2013

West Coast Motors heeft hem binnen weten te halen, de BAR & SHIELD AWARD 2013!
"Oftewel we zijn door Harley-Davidson verkozen tot beste dealer van Nederland, we zijn hier super trots op!"

 Bij de toekenning van de Harley-Davidson Bar & Shield Award wordt gekeken naar zowel kwaliteit als kwantiteit van de dealer. De prijs gaat naar dealers die het hoogst scoren bij een evaluatie op maar liefst 150 meetpunten, en die verder gaat dan alleen maar verkoopcijfers. Zo wordt er ook kritisch gekeken naar zaken als uitstraling van het pand en de showroom, het opleidingsniveau van personeel, het businessplan, klantactiviteiten en natuurlijk ervaringen van klanten.
