I thought the project looked cool. Being in a very similar age/position, I rekn helps restore some of the fun.

This piece will get sectioned later for a slip joint. On a V motor there must be a way to separate the pipes.
Please, please, please don't be offended by the look of the rusty pipes in the pictures included in this link (I had to use what I had, not what I wished........then rode the thing for 1000's of Km tuning and just enjoying it!), but if you scroll down to pic #3, the upwards pipe to the back cylinder goes into a slip joint, no sealer, no clamps, no leaks.
That's how I did it, might give you some ideas.

Please continue, enjoying the build very much!
Who the hell would drag race a Ducati?!?!?!?!
