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.

Bolt-on Sportster Trike Conversion Kits by Paughco

Bolt-on Sportster Trike Conversion Kits by Paughco


Paughco's new trike conversion kit has been designed for the Sportster. The custom swingarm and rear axle pieces used in the conversion kit bolt directly in place of the stock swingarm assembly and utilize the stock belt or chain, depending on model. Once fitted all that is needed is a choice of GM 5 x 4.75 bolt pattern wheels and tires. 


The rear axle assembly used in the Paughco kit features a 70T 1-1/2in wide belt pulley or 51T chain sprocket, brake rotors, chrome four-piston calipers and limited slip differential. The stock shocks bolt directly to the new swingarm and OEM shock mounts. Rear axle assemblies are finished in black powdercoat and the swingarms are shipped as raw steel. 
Paughco Trike swingarms are offered for XL models ‘86-’10, and the axle assemblies can be ordered for both chain and belt applications.
