General stereo question

My 86' wing never had 1 , that I know of. I want to put 1 in. Is there a kit that I can buy to put 1 in ? Anyone know of any ?

Used to be, you could find aftermarket plates for Interstates. Aspencades have Stereo OEM. Now, if none is present, might have to make it. I fabbed a integrated CB that was removable on my '85 Aspencade, worked with intercom and all, but it sat on 4 small suction cup feet with a strap under faux tank storage door in use. Guess you could do same with aftermarket stereo? I fashioned lower from aluminum pieces, used tinted plexiglass as lid to prevent rain damage.


No "integration" as nothing to integrate with on the bike so it would be a lower profile than pictured below which shows the CB clearly, but the integrator I built is on top of the CB. Hardest part is where to put your speakers, and lots of options there.

I think it would be easy to do.
