Rear brake line 79

Post #1 by leggman » Sun Oct 08, 2017 3:44 pm

I am missing the metal line that runs from the rear master to the rubber line. I took the rear master to autozone to try to get fittings to make my own but nothing fit???
Is this a weird size or should I just replace the line?
Thanks... Dave

OK, I went down to the garage and dug through some boxes of bike parts and I found the metal line in question. Awesome. Then I got a good look at the rubber line and it is shot. Too many years of dry rot and cracking.
Back to the dealers I guess.
Thank you all.

Randakk lists a couple of numbers available from NAPA that will work if you can shorten the steel line a couple of inches. That's what I did on my '78.
