RE Tubes also:

When I was in the Navy I worked on big tubed transmitters and an old 1950s vintage r1051 receiver.  That thing had chains in the tuning system....   Tubes are pretty cool but the voltages to run em, not so much...

FWIW I love my '06 Triumph T100 Bonneville. I know it just retro but it has such a great look, it's a STANDARD motorcycle (which no one rally makes other than RE) and is a metal motorcycle and it has turned heads almost as much as my RE. I love the sitting position much like the RE and I can get my leg over the bike which many bike I can't being only 5'5" and 30.5" inseam. I know it a little heavy but when you're riding you don't notice it. Yes it priced high too but.... I had the air induction removed, removed the snorkel, added a K&N filter, Triumph "off road" silencers, jetting and dyno'ed and it just runs perfect and sounds great too. It;s a perfect match with my '04 RE IMHO. I've attached a picture and the dyno charts, what an improvement in the overall ridability.

The Hinckley Bonnevilles with the normal sized wire wheels are the best of them.
I like them for a retro bike.
I don't like the new ones with the cast 17" wheels, and the silly looking brake disc.
