Replacement copper alloy brake lines of various lengths are still available. Try Autozone online.
Trying to understand stupid people is like trying to pick up a turd by the clean end.

The copper-nickel 3/16 lines are pretty inexpensive and form easily.

the metric fitting is readily available from amazon, Jegs, Summit or your local speed shop.

Buy a nice flare kit. I have one from Eastwood. Much simpler to use than the crappy ones you get at the parts store. Be sure to get a kit that specifically calls out that it does metric bubble flares.
