If you want a new one you can go here.
Last I knew they were in the $300 range.

Used you can try EBAY

Wal Mart has them for $5. Some think it's a bit ghetto. :D

Does he know for sure that is it 'on its way out'? The clock on my '88 is intermittent. Sometimes works, sometimes is blank. I've been told that cleaning and re-seating the connectors on the back of the display might cure that. Haven't taken the time to tear into it yet. Otherwise, I'd keep an eye on eBay. I see them there occasionally.

I just called Sam... As of today, 11 January 2013, he is still doing business and his number is still good.

But, there is no stopping by to see what he has. He has everything boxed up and categorized, ready for shipping. So, if you need something, call him with what you need but there is no window shopping....

Does anything else work intermittently, with/without your LCD screen?
I had an issue where the LCD would intirmettently quit working/start working, as well as the radio, and I was certain it had to be a simple loose connection somewhere in the harness because the systems failed or worked almost without fail, as I rode over a bump in the road, even the slightest bump would make them work or fail. After tearing it all apart and cleaning it all up and putting it all back together, the problem persisted. Per chance, a buddy was helping me work out a completely unrelated issue when we 'accidentally' discovered that the WHOLE LCD/radio intermittent issue was in the fuse panel.
THE FUSE WAS GOOD, mind you, I know because it was the first thing I checked. The problem was that the female connector(s) in the panel that the fuse slips into was a tad loose...that is to say the connector's grip on the fuse itself was faulty. I flathead jeweler's screwdriver was enough to bend the connector back into a shape gave it its grip back, and both the LCD screen and the radio have worked flawlessly since.

Keep the rubber side down.
