Sorry. after review if my info. I left out a number from the frame: # 1007324 not 100732.  Original owner is now 84 years old and I am not sure about the origin of the dual exhaust. Thanks for looking!

Original owner states that he bought the dual exhaust from the Honda dealer in the 70's and did not like the sound of the stock exhaust. He did not keep the stock exhaust. Thanks.
