Local shop that makes brake line

Are there any local shops (west houston) that can extend or make me a new moto brake hose? I asked on a car forum and someone recommended katy hydraulics, but they don't have a website or anything, not sure if they would have the proper fittings. I imagine banjo fittings are pretty standard but I just don't have the experience to know for sure. I will be giving them a try on Monday but would really like to have a backup plan.

I already know about Speigler and other sources online, but I'm specifically looking for somewhere local for the quick turn around. Thanks for any help.

Cool that they made them while you waited, exactly what I wanted to hear. You happen to remember what they charged you? Thanks

Reading this made my head hurt. A better way to say that.

"Your choices are between cheap, fast, or good. Choose two"

For the R1. husky has brembos, wouldn't work. I have a KTM line not that it would work if the banjos were the right size anyway since I would still need another line for the other side.

Katy Hydraulics. Steel braided. Same story, he made them while I waited. The old ones were off the bike during a rebuild, he measured against existing lines to get the bends correct. It's been about 48K miles, no problems with them.
