Post by Embe »



Did anyone make a radio housing like the cycle sounds for the 81 gl1100 interstate fairings?

Not for many years. E-bay would be where to look and find.

My radio on my GL1100 didn't work when I bought the bike and was told it was way to to expensive to repair.
I had my friend make me a custom stainless plate to cover the existing place the radio was and then I added a
12 volt lighter and a USB port unit installed. It looks good and also charges my phone.
Blue tooth is way better inside the helmet.
Hope this helps

Haven't done much to it in the past couple of weeks due to a hand injury. I will let you know.

Yes. CycleSound made one specifically for the Hondaline fairing as well as they made the one for the Vetter.

I have tried (my radio,CB and intercom)not working I'ts way to expensive to repair so I just got an aftermarket bluetooth helmut unit off ebay that clips to the side of the helmut and a handle bar mount for my cell phone. I took the factory radio out and I made a stainless steel plate (you can make out of anything) and I mounted a usb port and a 12 volt source there

Not sure how similar the fairings are but I mounted an aftermarket radio in the clutch side compartment.
