That depends on if your looking for a functional CB antenna or just an offroad dune flag whip which can be had at any motorcycle accessory store. For CB whips you could try Radio Shack or a Radio installation store.

Ok well i got mine off amazon. It was $23 from amazon. You will also need a coax cable, spring and a stud. Also available on amazon. You can either buy a bracket or make one.

Also you can pick up a cobra 19 from walmart for like $30.

Yep, the radios fine, I mean its old from 1967 but it was top of the line and still works great, it's just the antenna that bruised up and beaten.

find a local CB shop, Radio shack has garbage antennas if they even have one at all. And a cb shop will have a huge selection and help you get the right things. And probably even tune your cb for free.
