Two Wheels, an Engine, and a Blah-blah-blah.

I want those spinner blades on my wheels like they had in the chariot race in Ben-Hur.

I'll be looking for air cooling, analog instruments, a manual reserve tap, a more or less flat seat, and if technology has caught up, constant velocity carburetors.

I'm with you. I'd throw in a kickstarter, though.

Can my next bike come with all of the mechanical skills I need to purchase all the old bikes I want?! Can someone make that happen?

Getting the mechanical skills is easy. It's learning to throw wrenches properly, and invent new swear words is the real trick. Working on old bikes will have you doing that real quick, so you need to learn proper form and technique to look like a real pro. To start out on a good note, find any 25 year old Japanese motorcycle that has been sitting outside for the last 20 years and try to remove the engine screws from it. That should start you out right. Then graduate to finding old Harleys and try to stop all the oil leaks. By then you will have all the wrench and tantrum throwing practice you need to hang with the best. Good luck!
