Can’t see the point of farting around using a mix of old and new pipe, especially where brakes are concerned. Fit new throughout.

I have looked at the Moss complete hose and pipe sets but have also considered buying bulk copper/nickel pipe and making my own pipes.  While I have never done this, a good friend of mine has extensive experience in this area and I feel he could cut the fittings off of my old pipes and install them on the new lines and bend the pipe as needed.  Is there a good reason not to go the bulk pipe route instead of buying a complete set of pipes?  I'm probably going to purchase a braided ss hose set to use with the new pipes.
