I see this on ebay:
LED Display panel (dot matrix 80x8) [LDP-8008]
The cost is about US $30.84
And this is what it claim:
LED Display Panel 80x08
The LDP-8008 is a dual-LED, tri-colour 80 pixel by 8 pixel LED matrix display. Each pixel consists of a red and green LED (commonly referred to as “1R1G”). There are 640 pixels and 1280 individually addressable LED elements. It includes shift-register circuitry such that all 1280 LEDs can be controlled with only 10 microcontroller I/O lines. Pixels can show as black (that is, completely unlit), red, green or orange (red+green).
These panels can be daisy chained horizontally to create a longer message display board.
The board comes with a 16-way IDC connector and power cable.
Hackability: 100% (full datasheet and driver source code available)
Dimensions: 320mm x 54mm (12.60in x 2.12in)

This is microcrontroller base so it should be ready for you to control with the PIC. It is from England and item number is 220737947074.
I am not anyway associate with this company.
