Hub generator light recommendations

I need recommendations on a retro-style light set for my bike . . . details inside.

I have a bike with a Sturmey-Archer dynamo hub, and the cheap plastic light set it came with is kaput. I want to find a retro-style front (chrome would be nice . . .) and rear LED light that can be used with a hub generator (must have an on-off switch). For the life of me, I'm having a hard time finding something that fits the bill. As I'm from Canada, if it is available in the Great White North that would be a plus, as would a price under $75.

Peter White Cycles has the best assortment of dyno headlights that I know of this side of the pond (most come from Germany, it seems). There's a "retro" one on the linked page (scroll down a ways).

He also has dyno taillights, although nothing that looks very retro.

Best answer: The Busch & Muller retro light works with a dynohub.

Response by poster: That Busch and Muller looks perfect!

Lumotec has a line of Retro lights, which are their halogen hub-generator-powered lights in a chromed "bullet" housing - not as nice as the new LED models, but they'll look pretty keen.

Peter White Cycles (linked above) and Amazon have them.

Maybe you could email Bruce about the taillight here, to see if you can hook it up to a generator.
