I think you'll find what you're looking for. Here's one manufacturer. Drossbach - Corrugated Tubing Solutions and Wire Conduit > Home
As for filling holes you've already drilled with JB Weld, Jason is right on. It will add no strength and just cobble up the looks. Fiberglassing will add little to no strength to the frame in the way you intend to use it. Good luck, send us some pix of the finished project.
Holes are now covered and painted over with a primer. Can't tell they are even there. It should bend before it snaps. As for the wire loom. I think I know what your talking about, but the only stuff i have seen is pretty bulky and would look tacky all over a bike.
