Happy Anniversary Orgasmatrön

Mother Fucker! Now I'm really feeling old. Motörhead's album Orgasmatrön is 25 years old today!


(Pic lifetd from Motörheads twitter account)


From Wikipedia: The albums working title was Ridin' with the Driver and was later changed to Orgasmatrön, but it was too late for Joe Petagno to change the cover art and the train design was used.



As well as alluding to the original name of the album, Joe Petagno also commented on the concept behind the album cover: Lemmy was living on a houseboat then, and collecting train models. He said, "You know, Joseph, I want a fucking train. It seemed weird to me... [laughs] but, yet again it worked".
o
 
The preliminary sketch had the Orgasmatrön train going in the opposite direction, but Petagno decided to turn it so it was going out of the picture rather than coming into it. "It gave me a lot of trouble, because [of] trying to fit the head in front of the train with this cow scoop. But it worked in the end".


Orgasmatrön is the only full Motörhead album to feature Pete Gill on the drums.


Gill (far right) also played on the four new tracks recorded for the 1984 'No Remorse' compilation album.

Sportster Bagger Kit


OK, when I first saw the title Sportster Bagger, I thought that's an oxymoron or a misnomer at best. Well take a look at this, yep it's a Bagger and believe it or not it's a factory XL!



Absolutely sick! This is the handy work of Doug Wozny of Dougz Custom Paint and Fabrication.



Doug did all the fabrication on the XL, called The Pro-Tour S Kit, in his Wisconsin shop. Check out his blog for a more detailed explanation of all the modifications.



From his website: "Doug is selling and doing the installation of this kit at his facility and plans are underway to offer it as a weld-in kit to qualified shops. The current pricing, not including the cost of a donor bike, is $14,500.00."

If you're heading to Sturgis, you may see this creation on the road.



Doug will have his unique Bagger on display at the FrameLock booth. Makes sense, cause' they may need to lock this puppy up, given the interest it'll be receiving.
