If I were to try to install a CB into a GL1500 that did not have one, I'd look at Ebay.
There is no better marriage between a CB radio and a GL1500 than the OEM unit.
The radios are available for under $200.
Transmit Switches are available in the handlebar control cluster for about $90.
The hardest item to find would be the connecting cable between the CB and the AM/FM.
However, there is ONE on Ebay right now. It is priced at $189.95. The reason for that is they are virtually unobtainable.
I'd jump on that one if I were you.
CB Radio for $114.95 w/free shipping - Item # 123610466611
Connecting Cable for $189.95 - Item # 312259087313
Switches and controls, $89.95 - Item # 192817169846
or Item 3 132939086898 for $80.00 plus $15 shipping.
If you really want a CB, you will be much happier with OEM.
