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.

MX-Style Twin-Cam Powerbike TUFF BURNER

Made in England: BMX-Style Twin-Cam Powerbike

CCE's Andy Tozer returns to his roots: 
BMX goes Harley and Twin Cam turns Shovel!

British Customizers still enjoy some freedoms – other than the over-regulated friends of the continental side of the Channel, the creativity to build "one-off" bikes with outstanding technology and designs that, to put it mildly, are "off the beaten path". Andy Tozer is also Sales Representative for renowned aftermarket distributor Custom Chrome Europe. Since 2007, Andy Tozer knows the British scene inside out – as well as the parts distributed. Because he also is working with them – for decades. His first BSA C15 looked already „bobbed“ and through the years he has owned numerous Evos and Twin Cams, most of which were modified – especially after he teamed up with CCE. "Tuff Burner" nevertheless is a very special project, into which Andy not just put a lot of thoughts and craftsmanship...

For tourist's, Kent is always highlighted as the "Garden of England" – and when you arrive in Dover, preferably on the Ferry (which offers a much better impression when watching the white cliff rising out of the mist or shining bright in the sunshine) rather than the faster, but highly un-romantic "Chunnel", you can explore that at any country road right from the start. Sellindge, base of CCE's UK sales representative, is situated just north of Folkstone, on a ridgeline from which in 1940 the "Homeguard" may have held watch for German invaders, but which has also a great view on the Romney March, for some decades the home of the legendary "Kent Custom Show", Englands cool and much missed biker event which also lured the
continental custom-pros onto the island to compete with British creativity.
