Are the fittings on the lucas brakes standard? I mean can I just go to pepboys or the like and pick up the fittings to make new lines?
no, the threads are shitworth standard. based on the square root of the diameter of the queen mothers asshole.

Go to a good speed shop. Take the Lockheed (not Lucas) caliper with you. They'll probably have the fittings in stock. Sorry, I don't know what the thread is off-hand, but it's not Whitworth. I walked in to a shop that caters to dirt track sprint cars and they made a braided SS brake line for my Commando in just a few minutes.

actually the fittings are pretty standard, just make sure you match the flares.
