My dad has a 99 Classic. Couldn't find/justify an Ultra at the time.
Now he wants to add a CB/Intercomm to communicate with his group.
Harley dealer quoted and outrageous price ($3000 i think).

Does anyone here know of anyone having done this retrofit (either through a dealer or on their own)?
Any experience/advice would be appreciated.

From what I understand, the Ultra CB radios are hard to get and have to work with the stereo in the bike. You may be better off buying a compact CB radio from Cobra, Midland or Uniden that have all the controls on the hand-held microphone. You can then get a handlebar mounted microphone holder and a stereo-CB-in-one antenna. I've seen this done numerous times and it works.
Example:

Sometimes you can find a totalled Ultra of the same year. You can buy them from insurance companies.

The best ones have bent frames and a lot of glass damage, Then you can use all the parts you need for whatever and you end up with a spare engine and gearbox.
