Default 73 brake hose

I'm in need of a stock front hose. (Has a russell braided on now) Can't locate a original #45521-73A or a discontinued V Twin 23-0725. Does anyone know if the 74 to like 77 front brake hose from V Twin work if I just re bend the caliper end for the banana caliper on my 73? VTwin and the distributors didn't know.

You are 2 adapters and one hose away from a custom brake hose.

Your probably right. Strange but there is a guy I think it's Bills bike shop that sells a 73 hose but its for a 6" over front end! Tried to get in touch but no response!? Next stop might be the hydraulic line fab shop! Oh Well.
