Default External flash with easy to replace "bulb"

OK maybe the correct work is "tube". I find I don't use any of the features on external flashes other than the tilt and swivel. Various TTL, E-TTL etc. are a "don't care" for me. As far as slave units, I prefer radio control.

Does anyone know of an external flash designed to have easy to replace flash tubes, PC connector, and a guide number of 120 or more? Don't care if it's 20 or 30 year-old stuff.

Don't know of any offhand. Perhaps some of the handle type flashes?
I have an old Vivitar 285 flash which I have been using for about 30 years, and it still works perfectly. The only time I have had to replace a Xenon strobe tube was in an automotive timing light. The components in camera flashes which most commonly fail are the HV capacitors.
