    As above - need an answer within 3 hours - eBay auction!

    The radio looks like it is deeper than the faceslot from about 2" inwards. (Difficult to describe - it's like a 3" deep radio with just the face DIN sized.)

    Link - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VISuperSize&item=320412531586

    Part number looks like 78178-99, described as from '99 Roadglide. My bike is '05 FLHT Standard. I guess I'll need speakers and an antenna too.

    All advice gratefully received!

    Looking at the Service Manual I think it's OK. The back is taller than the front and the front looks the same as the one I'm bidding on.

    Anyone disagree?

    Anyone know a link to the Radio or Bike Owner's Manual in PDF format?

    Many thanks,

    A

    Biglew,

    Many thanks - looks like it will work.

    New Harmon Kardon radio here (I'm in the UK) is over $1000, hence eBay.

    I wouldn't use CDs (or cassettes) on the move anyway - I can plug an iPod into the Aux-In for more tunes.

    Cheers,

    A
