    you can get that shit from any bike shop up here, length of hose, and the end fittings.

    or any brake and clutch place.

    Kai - Cylinder head specialists in Sydenham are one of the few places left here that carry the bits....don't think they'll make the line up though but ask anyway.
    I don't think anyone here now does WOF standard lines in house but race stuff can be screw - up joints so even a sidecar mechanic should be able to do one.....

    The ones they sell at the bikes shops up here have various lengths of line with the threaded fittings already crimped on each end, onto which various banjo/end fittings can be screwed, which is WoF legal. The ones that arent WoF legal are the ones of which you speak, threaded push fittings straight onto the braided line.

    disclaimer: i may be wrong as i am slightly retarded and have the beatties.

    haha we hope so. Will see how Phil goes in ChCh today - he's off to try undercar first, then find the cyl head joint in sydenham and see where we go from there.

    cheers

    If anyone ever needs in the future, Safe R Brakes in ChCh will do any length braided steel lines with fittings on the ends ready to go for bike or car..


    imdying here on KB can do them too, but we were a bit impatient since we are off to Timaru today for NZ Nats round 2

    Chur!
