Brake Hose for '04 V Star Classic - HELP PLS!

Hi guys...

I own a '04 V Star Classic and now to my issue, hopefully you guys will be able to help:
I got sick of the back pain im getting from the factory handlebar so i bought a new one which is a bit lower and wider.
All cables seems to work fine except the brake hose, looks like all i need for it is 4 inch more.
I found this seller on eBay that makes them in any specific size, i know i need it to be 22" long HOWEVER i got no clue which fittings or angle to choose.
i was looking at what i have now, it seems to have no angle to it, though still i dont feel comfortable and i definitely dont want to guesstimate about this.

If anyone knows about this and could help that would be amazing!
Thanks in advance!

p.s. - here is the link to the seller on ebay, the listing shows the few types of fittings.

My local auto parts store has a shop and they fab things like that, it could be worth a look at one in your local parts store, may save you some time.

Thanks for the reply Sugar Bear, I've been to 3 motorcycle mechanics/shops around my area, they wanted a ridiculous price in order to order the hose for me.
It doesnt make sense for me to pay around $90 for a hose that should cost about $30. That's why the eBay listing is my best choice.

Are you changing the angle of the bars or anything? If you're not changing the angle then just look at your fittings and get the same.
