I am really shocked to see that people wait until the brake hoses are in 
an appalling condition before they replace them. These are safety items 
that should be thoroughly checked each year. Original style rubber hoses 
do not last long. They can perish within 5 years. Hoses as old as over 
50 years can be lethal. Whenever there are defects visible, even very 
small cracks, replace them immediately. They are easy to replace and 
they are cheap at less than $100 for a full set of stainless steel 
braided PTFE lines from e.g. Goodridge.
