Ive bought through Ebay using the Goodridge buildaline route in the past.
The hoses can be bought at various lengths from 350mm to 900mm and different banjo adapters advertised.
Not the cheapest way go about it but you can undo the fittings and replace - ie chnge a 45* adaptor for a 70* to suit your build.

I recently got HEL braided lines from Mark at Lightenupgrade. He's an authorised HEL supplier and will make what you need. Very helpful and quick service

I always use Al Marshall excellent service every time. He made some bespoke lines for the Moto Margin a few weeks back. Sent him the shagged originals on Tuesday replacements back on Friday.
