Hello all, new to forum site. Just purchased a 1982 Aspencade low miles just needs a little exterior TLC. I thought these models came loaded so I never bother to check for options. Anyways, my question is having a FM/AM radio only what type of Clarion radio is this?

That's a standard Clarion Type II radio.

In 1982, Interstates came standard with a Type II radio, the intercom and CB were options. Aspencades came loaded with the radio, intercom and CB as standard.

Your bike has the radio, but has blanks where the intercom and CB are installed. So either:

- Your bike is an Interstate, not an Aspencade
- Your bike is an Aspencade, but someone replaced the fairing at some point with an Interstate fairing
- Your bike is an Aspencade, but someone removed the intercom and CB at some point.

You do have the tank and air pump of an Aspencade, so I suspect it is one of the second two options.

I believe that the following in what was offered for the 1982 year
"In 1982, the "Aspencade" was introduced, an Interstate model with more options. AM/FM Radio and two-tone paint was standard on the Aspencade (these were options on the Interstate) while floorboards, chrome and CB Radio were options on both models."
I just wasn't sure on radio type thanks, everything on My Aspencade is original from factory. less grips and some chrome here and there :D

From the Steve Saunders site:

"For 1982, the Aspencade also got vented stainless steel discs, two-tone seat and trunk pouches, the Clarion type 2 AM/FM stereo radio, digital dash, CB radio (US machines) and a clock. The stereo, CB radio and air pump are available as options on the Interstate."

As my post state 1982 Aspencade came with a standard/base that optional to the interstate all other options where available as options to both. Are there any other 1982 Aspencades on the forum with the FM/AM RADIO only? As mine

Min has am, fm no cb or intercom,i think it was removed,all wiring and hook ups are still intact inside the fairing. There are also a couple holes in the fairing where they where at. There are caps on them now. i have checked all serial numbers and is definatly an ASP. built in Ohio,if im rememberin right
