Breaker good buddies...looking for a dock to jam your favorite tunes? How about one that is made from a vintage Johnson Viking CB radio from the 1950's?

We spotted this defunct gem and thought it would be a great piece for a dock conversion. Some of our docks are pretty faithful restorations, while others get pretty wild. For this piece, we went for custom and funky, using the original design as our starting point.

To create this dock, we started by disassembling the unit and removing all the original electronics and wiring. (it turns out there is a lot of wiring in a vintage CB). With all the original circuitry out, we installed a 15 watt amplifier that drives a 5.25" Pyle 3 way speaker. The sound is great, plenty to fill a room.

Outside, we sprayed the original ventilated case a funky pea green for a retro feel and cleaned up the original chrome. (there are some holes in the case from a long lost handle, but it just adds to the character) To control the speaker, a new chrome volume knob and chrome push button on/off switch were added. Check out the awesome embossed Viking logo.

For a little extra flare, we wired up the red jewel light on the face plate to be a power indicator. Inside, 2 blue LED's are installed in the base that are on when the unit is turned on.

A universal Apple docking tray was added and wired to charge your Apple iphone or ipod while docked, whether the power is on or off. A single 110v chord supplies power.

So, what's your 10-20? Get this rig truckin' at your place pronto.
