Both Magnum Shielding and Barnett (www.barnettclutches.com) will make custom cables to fit at reasonable prices. Just tell 'em what you want and they'll quote you a price. Contact them by phone for specialized orders. I've used them both to make custom cables with no problems. I'd call Barnett and if they don't help you try Magnum again. Sounds like you got a dud that answered the phone.

Coincidentally enough, the nice lady at Barnett also told me they do not produce a brake line for the 1983 XLX.

But that's OK as I now have a complete front brake line for my bastard Sportster. I thought perhaps I would replace the rear brake hose as well, but it appears that the rear line/hose is a soldered one-piece line just like the front line was. And there is a tee between the line and hose with an additional port for a brake light switch. Also soldered. (Another pic attached).

So, that's another hose & line I'll have to piece together from separate parts.

From my parts catalog, it appears the 1983 Sportster was the only year that had one-piece brake lines. A mistake that HD corrected the next year.

More fun.

Unless you find a NOS part you are unlikely to find a one piece rubber hose.

The aftermarket provides the needed parts to assemble a hose that is actually better than OEM. Although not cheap....

There are many suppliers that offer different adapters, if you don't find what you need, cast a wider net.

They don't call me Ironhead Rick just because I'm hard headed
