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.

Shark helmets, RAW SERIES now at Motorcycle Storehouse

Shark helmets, RAW SERIES

The Shark Raw is a helmet with a distinct design, a mixture of a skull and the monster enemy in a spectacular first person shooter. It will surely not appeal to everybody! For those that like a bolt statement, the Raw is a great urban helmet with all modern features and safety aspects you'd expect of a leading European helmet manufacturer as Shark. The base is an open face helmet with a flip-up facial protection mask and a scratch resistant integrated goggle. 

On the inside the anti-fog layer helps with a continuous clear vision, even in more adverse weather conditions. The Micro Lock buckle system insures you'll get it on & off, without hassle. When it's all said and done, take out the detachable inside, place in a washing net and cold cycle it in your washing machine. Your Shark Raw is Fresh & Ready for new adventures! 

Available in Gloss Black, Gloss White Azur, Matte Black Metal, Matte Green and Gloss Orange/black striped in sizes from XS to XL. Other Shark helmets, like the EvoLine series 3 (jet / full face helmet) or the Shark RSJ series (jet helmet) are available as well, obviously all are EC approved.

Vorbei sind die Zeiten von Getriebe- und Primärversatz, Right-Side-Drive Getriebe, Rahmenänderungen, Schweißarbeiten und jedem weiteren negativen Beigeschmack von 300er Reifen im Harley-Davidson TC Rahmen. 

Mit dem neuen „Rick’s 300 Wide Tyre Kit“ für TwinCam Softail Modelle passt die Schwinge in den original HD Serienrahmen und der 300er Reifen läuft in der Mitte. 

Die Kraftübertragung erfolgt über eine Zwischenwelle, welche genau im Drehpunkt der Schwinge sitzt. Dadurch ergibt sich, dass Motor und Getriebe als eine Einheit verbleiben, weniger Belastungen auftreten und keine Federungskräfte auf die Riemen wirken. Da der Primärkasten an der original Stelle verbleibt, müssen die Fussrasten nicht versetzt werden und die Bodenfreiheit und die Kurvenneigung bleibt genau wie beim Serienfahrzeug. 

Zur Vereinfachung der Montage wird die Schwinge für verschiedene Optionen vorbereitet (Drive Side Bremse, original Bremssattel, seitlichen Kennzeichenhalter) und schwarz kunststoffbeschichtet. 

Die Rick‘s Räder werden mit speziellen Naben ausgeliefert, die für diesen Kit ausgelegt sind, damit das Rad genau in der Mitte läuft. 

Zusätzlich zu dem 18“ Schwingenkit wurde das System auch für 10,5“ x 20“ mit dem Avon 280/40 R20 Reifen angepasst. Der erste fertige Schwingenkit für ein 20“ Rad im OEM Softail Rahmen! Bei den unterschiedlichen Varianten für TC88 und TC 96 wurde darauf geachtet, die original Übersetzung beizubehalten.
