Non-pressurized rubber brake line

On another (not car) forum I frequent some one is working on a 1981 240D Chassis #247333 and posted

"The brake fluid reservoir feeds a non-pressurized line down to the master clutch cylinder under the dash. In my car that line is older than Methuselah, and has dried out. Disturbing it while doing the brakes was a bad idea. NAPA says they don't know what to sell me since their brake line is all steel or comes with end fittings."

any suggestions?

as the line is just gravity feed to the cylinder you can use any hose that will not be affected by brake fluid. and a couple of jubilee clips (worm drive?)
maybe a brake hose off an other car that has the correct internal hole size would do? or motorcycle rear brakes is sometimes that sat up (fazer\ fzs600 yamaha in UK)
