    I have a 1975 and 1978 Moto Guzzi T3 and would like to replace the flexible brake lines due to age. Harper tells me there are none available and if he had any they would be 25 years old. Does anyone know of a source for a replacement brake line for these older bikes?

    Hey Coupeman,

    Several years ago I replaced the hose on my '74 LAPD. No one made the line back then so I made one up from a stainless hose kit. Had to cut the hose to legnth and mount it on fittings.

    Here's a shot of it today. Very dirty (brake dust) but you get the idea:

    Harper's is flat out wrong, & should know better. MG Cycle has all 3 options: flex rubber hose similar to what they came with, stainless braided in assembled kit form specifically for many different models, & stainless components so you can make your own. Have for '75 850 T (single front disc only), and later 850T3 both civilian & police/floorboard versions with the high, wide bars. I have their pre assembled stainless braided kit on my T3-FB, done when the original rubber started cracking a few years ago, like yours. Take a look at the options at mgcycle.com, then call Gordon at 888-464-2925, 9-5 M-F Central time, he'll figure out exactly what you need & fix you right up. Take a good long look at the on line catalogue first, they have all kinds of stuff made up for your (& my) old round heads.

    They are just a brake line. You should be able to go to any shop that deals with brakes or hydraulic hoses and get one made up.
