Brake Lines

I'd like to run black brake lines but cant find them. I'm thinking about bending up my own out of stainless and was wondering if anyone else has done this. I'm thinking i could run stainless steel along the fame and use short lengths of flexible brake line at the rear caliper and at the rear brake resevoir more like a car than flexible or soft lines for the entire length. anyone know any reasons why i shouldnt do this? anyone aware of any issues with to much pressure on the calipers due to a lack of flex in the brake lines or some other reason I'm overlooking? and any Ideas where to get black lines, i've seen them on a couple of the builds. I think the braided brake lines look a little to bulky.

Im making mine out of hard line also, have made some of the bends on the rear of the bike, still trying to figure where to put some flex, also thinking the rear, need to get my fwd controls in so I can mount my master cylider and finish with the rest of the line and bends and then send it off and get it made out of stainless with fittings and what ever else for about 50.00.

Hey guys - Rootbeer Float is the one that has posted pics on here in the past of the hard brake lines. He is building a bike for me now, and I have all the lines and fittings right in stock if you need anything. Here are examples of them

Rob...... Got a web sight or somthing? I'm gonna need some shit, I'm going to do the rear lines first, I can bend my own but i need the fittings and the brake light switch, I'm running a GMA brake anb BDL foot controls. I'll post some pics. if you can, take a look and see what you think i might need and also what diameter steel line are you using and where can i get a 37 degree flaring block. Man now that I have collected all the parts i need to do alot of the assembley it looks like I'll have a shit load of questions and i really appreciate all the help and input everyone is leaving

wow, that looks so clean. What size are you using for the brake line? and what ends? looking at doing this as I am relocating a remote master cylinder for a twist internal front brake. Locating it under the transmission.
