Stainless steel brake line

Years ago, I found a one-piece stainless steel brake hose for the front brake on my T140V. I've searched and searched, but can't find another one.
Does anyone have any ideas of where I may be able to find one?
Thanks, Bill

Thanks, Thirdbike. I'll check 'em out. By the way, you've been a great help to me over the last couple of weeks. Thanks again. Now if you could just get my Amals set up properly...

Glad I could help.

Don't hesitate to ask if your amal carbs are giving you more grief

I found S.S. brake hose at Rask Cycle, and have reset the floats in the Amals. Although I'm still doing some fine tuning, the bike idles MUCH better than it has for al long time. I can recommend cheking/resetting the float levels to anyone having trouble with Amal carbs.
