Radio for 1983 Goldwing Interstate

Post by nrmartin » Mon Aug 25, 2014 3:01 pm

Were there various radio options for the 1983 Goldwing Interstate? I just bought this bike and was searching the parts manual for radio parts but it appears that there was no radio option for the Interstate. The only radio parts shown in the manual are for the Aspencade. My bike has Honda Clarion speakers but it has a Optimus AM/FM cassette radio with a headphone jack in the left console panel. I am curious if this radio system was added later or if this was a factory install.

It was probably added on by Previous Owner. The Gl1100 had clarion systems. I am not sure if the bikes came with radios. I think the clarions were the afterthought of Honda.
This is my opinion and not based on anything.
