Hello all. Wanting to replace the rubber brake lines but don’t see exact replacement lines available. What is the easiest way to accomplish this?

Thanks

Check Barnett catalog, then you will see length and banjo needed. They also sell full kit for any bike.

A bike shop should be able to supply you with off the shelve braided hoses, like Goodridge & the banjo bolts if required.

If you are patient and dig deep you may find oem hoses.

Goodrich or Russell make good aftermarket hoses. Be sure to get coated

Barnett catalog shows hoses for 87, 88-90. Are these hoses essentially the same as my 85?

Thanks

Accell was the last mfgr I recall selling oem style hoses.

Check stock those are some pretty rare parts the resto guy snatch that stuff up.
