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.

Hot Set Up kits and crankcases from S&S

S&S Cycle's 124ci Hot Set Up kit has been developed by the company to allow users to retain the bike's stock crankcases, cylinder heads, oil pump, and cam cover from all '07-'13 Big Twin and 2006 Dyna models while taking the capacity out to 124ci.

Options available on the kits include a 10.8:1 compression ratio with S&S 91cc high flow Super Stock heads, other choices are flat top pistons, or without heads, a 10.4:1 compression ratio intended for stock 85cc chamber cylinder heads with 10.9cc dished pistons. When replacement cylinder heads are included in a kit they are finished in wrinkle black powder coat to match the factory finish.
S&S originally included chain drive cams in 124ci Hot Set Up kits, but due to continued customer requests for S&S gear drive cams, these are now included and are the Easy Start cams.
Alongside the Hop Up kits, S&S Cycle also has upgraded crank cases available. Created for use on '07-'14 Touring model Big Twins, the cases, made from 356-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, feature thicker wall sections and are clearanced for strokes up to 4 13⁄16in and cams up to .720in lift. A Timken sprocket shaft bearing is included and the front motor mount is reinforced.
