It's all fun and games until someone tries to pass me.

Is there anyone local that can make a custom brake line?

Depends on what "local" means to you, but I've had brake lines made up by a shop in Clinton Township (I think?). I forget the name, but it's on 14 Mile, a couple blocks east of Kelly. Next to a collision/paint shop called Steve's or something like that.

Not terribly helpful, I know, but they did do a good job with the couple SS lines I needed and charged a pretty fair price, a little bit less than similar brake line kits were selling for online.

Thanks! I'll poke around. I figured anywhere within the Metro area was local.

Great place, had them make up some stuff for my '72 CB350F last year. They're quick and reasonably priced.

There is a place called Detroit Flexible Metal/Auto-Cycle, and Marine that I use to use for braided lines when I worked doing dyno testing. They use to have a aeroquip fittings and such. Not sure how much they still do, but worth a shot
2921 Industrial Row, Troy, MI 48084
(248) 280-1171

They also do Defense work: http://www.detroitflexdefense.com/

Get out your wallet out. $$$$$$

I use them often at work. Great stuff, great support, but not a cheap place if your tinkering out of your home garage.

Check speedway motors online. You would have to order it, but shipping is fast and they have alot of hot rod and sprint car building parts.

Brake lines

I had these folks make up a brake line for one of my old air heads. 1/2 the price of oem at the time. Quick turn around and great customer service over the phone. If local doesn't pan out for you....
