I do have a couple questions. First: I expect the brake lines to be corroded, damaged, and worn. I plan to replace pretty much everything, and with the upper brake line I see this strain right after the master cylinder where there is excessive cracking and wonder if this routing is normal or should I plan on doing it differently? I see the length of this line is 15" and there are other options (13") that seem intended for bikes with lower handle bars. Anyone have experience?

I'll probably replace everything here except the caliper. Even with the big chuck taken out of it, I think I can get away with just cleaning and repainting.

Also, any tips to getting the pad out of the caliper housing without a functioning master cylinder to push it out?
