Ignition module?

When I acquired my 83 FXRS it came with an aftermarket ignition module. The module is mounted in the cam cover as are many others. It uses the centrifugal advance system that came with earlier cone motors using points. I am trying to identify the manufacturer. The module does not have any identifying markings.

I have attached a couple of pics. Please let me know if you know who made this module.

What would you like to know about that module? I designed it and used to built them back in the mid 90's.

Cool

I got my FXRS back in 2003. Been my daily rider since then. Never had a problem with the module.

I have it down right now for a ground up refresh.

How do you set the initial timing?
