Pretty fricking weird. By shorting out the CDI wires as you did, I imagine you caused the capacitor to dump it's load and fire the coil. Simple enough. If you had enough unburned fuel sitting in the cylinder(s) still under pressure, then I suppose you could detonate it and 'start' the engine running. Probably a stressful way to start an engine, though.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
