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.

New Suff at W&W: S&S SH74-Series Early Shovelhead Style Engines

S&S SH74-Series Early Shovelhead Style Engines

The legendary Early Shovelhead generator engine was made by the Motor Company for 4 years only, from 1966-1969, and today it’s a rare bird. This version by S&S with stock 74 cubic inches combines authentic retro style with today’s technology for thousands of trouble-free miles. 



Fully assembled with the best components S&S has to offer, so factory specs are at least met and in most parts exceeded. The latter include bullet-proof steel flywheels, reinforced connecting rods, billet oil pump, billet rocker boxes, and roller rockerarms. The installed S&S 513G cam provides higher lift and increased valve timing for better performance. 


SH74 Early Shovelhead engines come without intake manifold, carburetor and ignition, so you can choose whatever seems appropriate for your needs. Crankcases, cylinder heads and the gear cover have a cast finish, cylinders are black powder-coated and the rocker boxes are polished. Top end oiling is provided through the pushrods which makes external oil lines obsolete.
