Hello all! My mother and stepfather both have 1800 (2000 and 2004) trikes. Since we live in SC helmets don't get worn all that much. I have recently installed the factory CB in my stepfathers so they both now have them. Is there a handheld mic available. I know Harley sells them for their bikes for those that don't wear helmets or don't want headsets, but it has about 7 pins where the Goldwing plug on their trikes looks like it only has 5. I thank you in advance for the replies. Oh, I did have an old Realistic CB lying around and the mic had the same plug, but that didn't work.

If you know the pinout layout of the plug on the cb you can re-wire the mic to match it. You need to find an old cb radio shop that's still in business.

I've got a Radio shack 40 channel ssb radio I've been thinking about adding to my bike but want to rig it with a headset, lost the modified mic for it years ago.

Most automotive cb's use a condensor (electret) mike. They need phantom power, so won't work on Wing. Wing needs the dynamic type element, or a battery powered condensor element. Air rider, is one I can think of.

Then, the other problem. How to get into "talk" mode?. It's easy to use the speakers for receive, and a element in mike body, then use ptt on left grip, but if you want ptt on mike body, it gets a little more complicated. A Harley set-up (7 pin) makes it much easier, but, then, you have to put that type end on your regular helmet(s) communications systems. Or, yet another lash-up for the external mike with it's appropriate connectors to include ptt. But bottom line, where to find dynamic element. Little speakers will work, but, it's the size problem. Inside of some cb mic housings, some speakers will fit just fine. I imagine J&M will sell us an appropriate one.

Oh, if the Harley mic is dynamic, one could fix that up to work, by using a AT 5 pin plug, and use the ptt on left handlebar. But, I wouldn't necessarily recommend that while riding.
