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.

Custom Chrome Europe revolutionizes Gender-Customizing!

As it is widely known, there are also female riding and customizing members in CCE's staff, most of which never have had any problems with any "Political Correctness" (PC), but the times are changing. Following up on the "#metoo" discussion in the media on sexual harassment, Custom Chrome Europe is again spearheading the scene in a bold move to eliminate all gender related terms – and potentially offensive images – from the pages of their catalogue and websites, effective April 1st 2018. 

PCcorrect Screw Sets
The political-correct dressed tech-team of Custom Chrome Europe presents the CCE LEFT/RIGHT/ZERO PITCH Screw Sets at the Boardwalk Show 2018 in Daytona, 
starting with the rear axles of the bikes.

Not just will plugs (currently also under discussion as not "PC") and connectors be no longer signed as "male" or "female" – a sexist and offensive term in workshops ever since the invention of electricity – the Custom Chrome Europe team has decided to take the theme even further. 

That's CCE's current Screw sets as we knew it are delivered to the workshops and builders.

Under the cover of secrecy, CCE has developed complete "CCE PC Screw Sets" that allow any stock Harley-Davidson, Custombike and the new Indian models to be converted to either LEFT-HAND-THREADED or RIGHT-HAND-THREADED screw configuration. So in the future you will be able to work political correct on motorcycles which screws either turn all clockwise or counter-clockwise. As discussions about introducing a third (neutral) gender, in particular in Germany and other parts of Europe, are well under way, the ever inventive CCE team also added the option of a ZERO PITCH THREAD screw set which, due to its character and design issues inherent in the technology, might prove to be difficult to use in everyday workshop routine, but if you want to be "PC", you gotta have it!

Corbin Hollywood Solo for 2010-2018 H-D Sportster 48 & Sportster 72

Corbin Hollywood Solo 
for 2010-2018 H-D Sportster 48 & Sportster 72

Hollywood Solo saddle gives your Sportster a slick, low profile while providing reasonable, boulevard cruising comfort. Our Fibertech basepan provides a perfect, flowing fit along the tank, chassis and fender, but rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job. Naturally, Hollywood Solo is built up with high density Comfort Cell® foam to provide a firm resilient ride despite the incredibly low profile. It’s seats like this one that brought Mike to the development of our infinite ratio foam! 

Hollywood Solo comes standard with genuine leather seating in your choice of colors and styles. Leather seating is great for motorcycle saddles because it breathes with your body and will break in with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Quality leather is also extremely durable. Over time your saddle will age and develop a unique character just like your leather jacket and chaps do. If you care for it properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream, your leather saddle will be your riding buddy for many years. 

Hollywood solo mounts easily with a tongue in the front and a single bolt into your fender at the rear. Naturally we use a stock location so there is no drilling required and the saddle bolts right up. Notice also how the Corbin Wizard's have designed the nose of this saddle long to bridge the gap to the tank for a cleaner appearance.
