    cool. I actually just did something similar with one of my swingarm kits because the brake line kept rubbing the tire. It's a nifty trick...though I simply had a 7/8" hole bored into the top of the swingarm and then another up front and to the side and fed a pre-made line thorugh it...this way it's removeable and easily serviceable...stock line can also fit. You can get nice rubber grommets to pretty it up. I also tapped a 1/8" hole under the swingarm in front of the eccentric to allow for a drain.

              the advantage is that you only have a small whole and it looks clean. but its' more of a pain to source the parts and "roll your own".
