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.
