FlatRacer BMW R90S and R2v /7 Series Dual sports seat

FlatRacer BMW R90S and R2v /7 Series Dual sports seat

First shown in the 1974 BMW R90S and later adopted by the RS/RT ranges plus all the later /7 series such as S, CS, T etc, it proved to be a very popular option, combining an attractive look with comfort and practicality but unfortunately the seat bases are made of steel that after several wet winters, dissolved to crumbling rust.

This pattern seat has been developed by us with the mission of producing a very accurate replica of the highest quality, ditching the metal bases has these rust notoriously. Fits exactly as per the original with a seat base made of sturdy GRP (5-7mm), for corrosion resistance and strength, finished in semi-gloss black, for that original look, extra strong (5-7mm thick), reinforced with 600gr/m2 woven roving (similar to yatch construction methods), flexible yet nigh on unbreakable. No more rusty seats!

Fitted with a very precise and accurate replica of the original seat cover and foam, produced exactly in the same dimensions as BMW designed it over 40 years ago.

Special care was given to the edges and drilling points with each seat assembly individually checked and finished by hand by us. All the captive threaded nuts are present (M5) in order to fit the original or our pattern seat cowl, exactly in the same positions as the original BMW seat. The seat base is pre-trimmed and drilled to accept the original service booklet lid (fitted for illustration purposes only - no longer available new from BMW).

It also includes our own upgraded stainless steel hinges, zinc plated steel locking rod and its conical rubber stop, all the rubber stops fitted on the base plus all the necessary seat fasteners, including those for the cowl, in stainless steel, pre-fitted.

The FlatRacer seat assembly includes a very accurate replica of the original seat cowl, made of sturdy, glossy white GRP (black available as a special request), pre-trimmed and drilled, complete with an original BMW logo and fitted with our own high quality pattern rear luggage rack in black (chrome available at extra cost of £10), complete with all the necessary stainless fasteners and BMW spacers.


Please don't confuse this seat with other patterns on the market, our seat base alone weighs more than double than most pattern seats on the market and the care we lavish in each seat shines through!
