Restored Royal Enfield Interceptor might have one flaw

Is it just the lighting, or is that a dent on the muffler?
A sharp looking 1969 Royal Enfield Interceptor for sale on CraigsList in Colorado is advertised as the "Perfect Resto!"

In fact, the seller says, it's "Guggenheim" material.

As such, its photo was bound to get a thorough examination from the Interceptor owners and restorers on the RE Interceptor Yahoo group.

"Maybe it's the lighting, but it looks like there's a dent in the muffler, just ahead of the pillion peg," one member noted.

"No it's a dent," another member replied. And he went on:

"You can always tell when a bike has been put together by a custom car shop that doesn't really know bikes. They always forget to check the kickstarter clearance. First kick goes bang on the pipe... Nothing against car guys by the way. It's just a trend I've noticed lately."

If true, it's one of those fascinating little observations that go down as "Murphy's Law."
