cool...that would work well...you can also just buy a cassette adaptor for audio input, plug any mp3 into that and gets same results....tape player adaptors are about 10 bucks anywhere including wal mart...glad yours worked for you too with the new radio!!! just my .02

sorry i dont have a camera. i have two bikes, i use a cassette adapter on my 87. my 84 needed a new radio so i replaced it. a plus on the new radio is it will charge the mp3 player on the usb port. both setups seem to work very well and eliminates storing problems with cds and or cassettes. i bought two identical mp3 players so i can charge one while the other plays using the new radio. john we met in wash. last summer. regards walkabout :)

Yep I remember and I enjoyed meeting you. :) I don't recall seeing your radio setup though. I was just curious what you did to mount it. :waving:

I have a Sony MP-3 (from Walmart) and love it! I download audio books free from our on-line library. Now I'm well read and entertained!

i kept the clock it still works, i threw the aftermarket radio in the trash. i bought some 1/4 inch abs black plastic from tap plastic. using a table saw and electric jig saw i cut the plastic. i made a sheet to go under the new radio for it to rest on, i then cut a piece to make a face plate to go around the face of the radio. i fastened all of this with stainless screws. the plastic has a pebble finish so it looks good it can also be glued just by using abs glue. regards walkabout :)

Sounds good. I'd still like to see pictures sometime if you get a camera or can get someone else to take pictures. :waving:

Wow, wasn't expecting that, but cool! You won't regret having the camera. Mine is with me on my bike almost all of the time. It's amazing the good pictures you can get when you carry it with you all the time. I look forward to seeing your pix! :waving:

I tried the casette adaptor couple of weeks ago on my '89 just kept switching sides would stop so rather than break it took it out. I'm useing a satalite radio. It quit broadcasting on me so tried going direct into casset player. Ended up replacing satalite radio.

Scosche also makes an inline modulator( it plugs into antannaes down under the seat) you just flip a switch and it automatically switches to your aux plug for your mp3 or whatever...completely bypasses the antannae signal...i dont have one yet but am going to install one next spring...you can find these inline modulators on ebay....

He has a great idea, I did the same thing a year ago or so, my stereo has the port for the mp3 and a cassette, it came out of Nissan car, I got it for 25 bucks used and bought new Walmart speakers. Sounds great...
