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.

Latest News in the Custom Bike World



Max, owner and builder at MS Artrix, Italy

At the Verona Motor Bike Expo in Italy, one of the biggest and best Custom Bike Shows in Europe, we had a brief moment to to talk to Max, owner, builder and painter of the World famous MS Artrix Bikes. Long, low and graciously formed Custom Bikes that won many prizes and awards in Italy and Europe, decorate his stand. Max, dressed in typical Italian style, does not represent the Biker-look, he looks more like a designer and that’s exactly what he is. 

Max started designing and custom painting Bikes in 1995. But painting alone wasn’t enough for Max, who realized that he wanted to be more involved in the whole bike building experience. “It was a long process, but after many years, in which I learneda lot, I started building one-off Custom Bikes. That was in 2006, when I built my First custom for a client.” It was an instant succes story. Magazines spread the word and showed his pieces of rolling art, his bikes attended various bike shows and MS Artrix became a succesfull and famous builder.    

Max, who used to be working in Construction, builds unique, one of a kind and one-off bikes, still does the painting all by himself too and the owner of World Famous fashion company Fendi, with a keen eye for fashion and perfection, commissioned a motorcycle at MS Artrix. Signore Fendi was so happy with that bike, that he recently ordered another one to be build at MS Artrix.

Lowbrow, Cole Foster grips - New at Motorcycle Storehouse

Lowbrow, Cole Foster grips
New at Motorcycle Storehouse
Some things on a bike can have a nasty habit. They may look different than you had imagined, bummer man... That's not what you will experience with a set of barrel styled Old School grips that breath Classic with a capital C. 

These will look good from any angle, even in any color. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Cole Foster, the almost legendary owner / designer of The Salinas Boys Customs, did the design. 

Grips come packed in a embossed metal tin, so you'll know you have something special. Available in three colors: Black, Antique Marble Grey and Mocha Marble. All you need is a 1 inch diameter handlebar and the universe will melt into one great nice picture perfect happy place. Just have to 
get 'm first, but that's easy. 

Contact your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer.
