Default Looking for antenna opinions...

my black bonnie has an inoperable electric antenna, and needs to be replaced. i'm considering either replacing with a electric black retractable, or a non electric black rubber euro style antenna - price is close enough to not matter. what'* the consensus?

For those prices, you could simply get a replacement from a wrecker. That'* what I did over a year ago.

I have a "hidden" antenna on order for mine. My antenna stop working a week ago or so. I want the smoother look so I went with a hidden one and plan to cover up the small antenna hole in the fender.

The easiest thing to do is to get a replacement from a Bonneville. I got the replacement antenna from the dealer, but the new ones are one size fits all, and it turned out to be a custom install that took two hours.

Where did you get it from?? I have that dumb rubber one on the Bonneville as it was temporary but it is going on a year soon so it is time to either get another electric one or a hidden one.
