If you were really cool, you had a chrome filler cap showing right behind the front tire on each side.
That's cool but my cutout is even cheaper. Drill a 1 3/4" [or larger if pipe is larger] hole in the pipe where you would do a weld-on. Place a band clamp over the hole to close it. Slide it down the pipe to open it, it's "tuneable".
