You have a couple of options if the lines are mostly intact.

The aftermarket carries repair kits for most any need.

If the line is not kinked or split, it may still be serviceable. The salvage yards are big business for auto body repair. They must drain the fuel from the tanks, so the lines should be readily available and easy to procure.
