I don't the hose replacement will help the sticking problem. More likely 
one of the pistons is sticking in its bore. Unless it shows signs of rust 
in the bore a new caliper shouldn't be necessary. Just a rebuild kit with 
new seals, etc. Worth a look.

Congrats on your purchase, BTW...

Runs great, 
looks particularly bad since some SUV clown backed into it.
If you're near Mountain View, CA,
it's the red one with the silver bootlid.
