BMW Classic Cafe Racer kit

BMW Classic Cafe Racer kit

We have designed and developed this kit for those who wish to transform their classic BMW R2v Airhead into a great period looking Cafe Racer yet keeping its practicality.

Our BMW Classic Cafe Racer kit features the following:

  • Giuliari Sports replica Cafe Racer seat w/ side alloy trims
  • Rear stainless steel 5.50" medium rear mudguard incl. fittings
  • Lucas 564 tail light assembly, pre-fitted
  • Fork brace kit featuring our s/s 5" short front mudguard
  • Monza deluxe alloy fuel cap kit
  • Cast alloy headlight pegs (can be altered to accept ign. switch)
  • Ace Senior handlebars (minor mods may be required to fit)
  • Stainless steel round bar end mirror
  • MegaTon exhaust silencers
    • It comprises our Giuliari Sports replica seat, featuring a very sturdy black powder coated metal base, zinc plated steel hinges and locking spigot with the correct BMW OEM conical rubber stop. It locks and hinges as per the original, making it a straight forward, bolt on conversion

      In addition, we have included our new 6" (or the more rounded and narrower 5") stainlesss steel mudguard with a pre-fitted L564 tail light. The mudguard is pre-trimmed, pre-drilled and pre-mated, making a simple job to replace the original fibreglass item. To complement the period look, we've added our own fork brace kit featuring a matching 5" short s/s front mudguard.

      To further enhance the period look we have included the Ace Senior bar fitted using the original bar clamps, a s/s bar end mirror plus some very nice looking cast alloy, Ceriani type, headlight brackets (which can be easily modified to accept the BMW ignition switch pivot on pre 85 bikes). We've also included our deluxe polished alloyMonza cap, a direct replacement for all the post 1976 screw in/flush caps.

      To finish, we've included our favourite silencers, the MegaTons, which are also one of the easiest to fit on the BMW R2v /5 to /7 frames.

      This kit is designed to fit the BMW /7 series. We can offer similar kits for other series, please do contact us with your requirements.


This kit will fit straight in all BMW /7 (76-84) Series.

Please contact us for alternative options for the earlier BMW /5 & /6 Series and later R45/65 & Monolever Series (85 on).

BMW /5 Stainless steel side panels

Originally introduced by BMW as an option for the later BMW R2v /5 Series and standard equipment for some USA models, these were not overly popular, not least in Europe where the BMW riders' taste was somewhat more restrained.

These side panels are high quality stainless steel stampings, accurate replicas of the originals. Please note that these do NOT feature the the black painted stripes.

These fit exactly as per the originals (a rubber band and the four tangs on the rear sub-frame, often missing). Fits all /5, /6 and /7 Series (69-84). Very cool and period looking!
