If you are talking about bunded tube for brake and clutch lines, yes you can bend it by hand.

You will need to get a flare tool for the ends though.

apparently 3/16 is 4.76 and the lines are 4.75 and it works

even the supercheap is imperial only

surely someone has tried this?

An alternative suggestion.

 

Take all, or any, of the old lines off and bend the bundy tube to the same profile and leave 100mm extra on length.

Trial fit and marks to the correct length.

Give them to any brake place and have the ends PROFESSIONALLY* flared (including double) to the correct length.

 

That's what I did.

Be careful of buying tools you may only use once, they just clutter up the shed.

 

*= i.e. no mistakes nor any need to remake because of ineptitude!
