As short as they are, these pipes are no louder than stock.
Question completely unrelated to this topic, Mr. Jones. What is that lever on your points cover. Can you manually retard timing?

Good eye Scott,

It's just to keep the original, as-ridden-board-tracker, found-in-a-barn-look.
Hiding inside the cover is a Dyna S DS6-1 electronic ignition set-up.
The lettering is just etched in to give it character.
Here's a close-up.

I always thought that if you are going to go to the trouble of pissing off ALL your neighbours then you migh just as well go the whole hog and fit magaphones.........I would probably spread the flat spot a bit wider. I know what an umlaut is, what's a grave and why is it important?

I like to hold a little in reserve. Keeps the neighbors guessing as to what I'll come up with next.
An umlaut is two little dots over some letters, an accent grave is one dot. And I think it's only important to some Europeans... and not many of them at that.
