If Honda still sells them new (doubtful) you aren't going to want to pay the price, which was around $900 the last time I looked.

You can find them used on eBay for around $450 or so - search for the part number, which is: 39100-MT8-771

You might find them at some parts resellers as well: https://www.google.com/search?q=39100-MT8-771

Truly shocking the premium price that these second-hand radios command!

In the UK they're equivalent pound to the dollar... £450-£500... Crazy crazy!!!

Crazy yes, but like everything else they are only worth what someone is willing to pay.

Exactly... Demand and supply. Market forces in action.

... Same as exhaust collector boxes... Another huge ouch!

These guys buy up GL1500s and part them out, so they could possible help you as well. https://www.facebook.com/Goldwingking-119935198076794/

The radio in my 92 Goldwing Interstate is a 4 knob AM/FM/AUX and it goes for $400.00 to over $500.00 used on ebay. The 5 knob AM/FM/CASSETTE goes for much less than mine. You can have it reworked by Sierra Electronics for $125.00 and a two week turnaround. That's what I am going to do with mine.

What year Radio are you looking for? I have one out of a 89 and one out of a 96. Both work. I may need to save the one from the 96, as I removed it to create a storage box, but if I sell the bike, it may need to go back in. But the 89 radio is good and I have no need for it.

Which radio is from the 89, four knob AM/FM/AUX or five knob AM/FM/Cassette? I am looking for the four knob radio.

The 89 has the cassette player. As far as I know, only the Interstate radio had the AUX input, and they seem to be rather spend.

OK, thanks. I can't use that one. They have the digital display in the dash. Mine has the clock and display in the radio. I guess it will be going to Sierra Electronics. That's cheaper than buying one off ebay. Thanks for the reply.
