Many (if not most) race bikes came with down pipes. It was a real problem for us desert guys. But there just wasn't room around the frames or air boxes to run a pipe. Bultaco Pursangs and Ossa Stelletos or the little Rickmans are prime examples. The pic of the Husky is a good example of an aftermarket pipe trying to use up as much room as possible before moving it's way towards the back of the bike. A friend of mine used to make pipes for Bultacos he called "snake pipes" because they came out of the motor and then wrapped around the frame in front of the bike.
