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.

Eerste Drie SCRAMBLER & TRACKER Custom Bike Show Motorbeurs Utrecht 2018

Custom Bike Show Motorbeurs Utrecht 2018

Eerste Drie in de klasse SCRAMBLER & TRACKER

1 Enzo van Lieshout! Deze 16 jarige! custombouwer maakte samen met zijn vader deze uiterst coole Board Tracker, en wel met een 50cc Honda Amigo blokje! 

Een ode aan zijn opa. Eigenlijk is alles zelfbouw, met hulp van onderdelen van oude klassiekers als Vespa voorvorkvering, BSA achterlicht, Delco koplamp, Honda naven, Triumph jiffy, en Solex tankdop. Details, lijnen en debijzondere technieken die gebruikt zijn maken het terecht de winnaar! 

2 De Flat Track Suzuki van Frank Edens. In klassieke Suzuki kleuren, gebaseerd op een 400cc Suzuki DRZ400ST met een gemodificeerd frame, 
custom made aluminium benzinetank, 19inch wielen, Showa ProMax voorvork en spuitwerk in de bekende Barry Sheene kleuren van Jacco, Royal Custom Works.  

3 - en toen werd het stil. Want na uren beraadslagen waarin de jury al moeite genoeg had om uit de vijf klassen de top drie te halen, 
wilde het maar niet lukken om de nummer drie van de Scramblers en Trackers te kiezen. 
De een is bijna 'te mooi, te gelikt' om een Flat Tracker te zijn. De ander, een echte Scrambler maar met een lekijk rekje achterop. 
Vlakke bruine zadels zijn ook taboe...
