    Got you some nice bike parts there SG John.thats a cool bike.when i was a kid i went to the old East Side Harley Davidson dealer in Portland Oregon with my father and they had 3 models of new bikes. Electra Glide,Sportster and a couple little Harley dirt bikes.thats it.wood plank floors.my dad rode Electra Glides.when i was about 10 i helped,watched him take a 59 or 60 Panhead he traded something to my uncle for and made a home made Bobber/Chop out of.thats before you could buy one lol.

    Thanks Johnny. My street bike is a '59 Duo Glide. It wasn't original when I bought it, and less so now. It's got a shovelhead top end on the panhead lower end, later transmission that I put a hydraulic clutch onto, home made pipes and forward controls. I bought it in '82 for my 20th birthday. Can't believe that I still have it, even though I haven't ridden in awhile. But then, that is why I have the guitars and amps that I do. Bought them when I was young, then held on to them and took care of them.

    Here's a nicer shot of the DST U84. It's one heck of an amp. If I set it at 8 watt s, it'll go toe to toe with my Deluxe Reverb.

    Most everything, minus the Tom Scholz Rockman (which ain't a tube amp).

    (2) 1 watt Marshalls and a 15 watt Egnater.

    I love low watt tube amps!

    Here's my 5 watt Swart STR-Tweed. I have the Swart Night Light Jr fastened in the back so I can crank it in my condo.

    This little thing has beautiful cleans and can rage like Neil Young, all with great reverb.

    I even played a small gig with it, and it kept up with no issues.

    Man, you guys must have spent a fortune on all your gear. I've been looking at second hand tube amps on the Guitar Center website, Craigs List, and Reverb, but seems like there isn't much difference in price between buying a used and getting one brand new out of the box.

    Not sure if these count as small since they weigh in at ~50lbs, but they are the smallest i have these days.
