FlatRacer BMW R100 RS Solo 3/4 seat

FlatRacer BMW R100 RS Solo 3/4 seat

FlatRacer BMW R100 RS Solo 3/4 seat.

First shown as a BMW option on the 1976 BMW R100RS, it is incredibly rare nowadays, despite being available few years ago from BMW by special order, albeit at cost of well over £1000 for the complete assembly!

Originally designed by the BMW R90S design master, Hans Muth, it proved a popular option at the time, not only with the R100RS! Stylish and comfortable, offering positive seat positioning for the more sporting rider although not overly popular with pillions despite the euphemistic "Seat an' Half" nickname.

This Sports Solo seat was developed by us with the mission of producing a very accurate replica of the highest quality, in fact better than the original, ditching the metal bases as they rust notoriously. The FlatRacer seat fits on the R90S frame, /7 Series and Mono exactly as per the original. It features a seat base made GRP, for corrosion resistance and long working life, finished in semi-gloss black, for that original look, extra strong (5-7mm thick), reinforced with woven roving (similar to yatch construction methods), flexible yet nigh on unbreakable. No more rusty and broken seats!

Fitted with a very precise and accurate replica of the original seat base, cover and foam, with patterns and dimensions exactly as BMW/Hans Muth designed it in 1975. It includes an excellent quality pattern replica of the original rear cowl, made of sturdy GRP (as per the original), finished in glossy white, it includes the hand peg cowls produced exactly in the same dimensions as the first version originals plus a 70mm BMW logo to complete the original look. The seat base is pre-trimmed and drilled to accept the original service boolet lid (fitted for illustration purposes only - no longer available new from BMW despite our requests for 500).

Special care was given to the edges and drilling points with each seat assembly individually checked and finished by hand by us. The tail section is pre-marked for accuracy of cutting and fitting, if hand pegs are required, exactly in the same position as the original BMW cowl. It includes our own upgraded laser cut stainless steel hinges, zinc plated steel locking rod and its conical rubber stop, all the required rubber stops plus all the necessary seat pre-fitted s/s fasteners.

£449.99

NB: The seat cowl is supplied uncut for the hand pegs. If you wish to fit these, the cutting lines are marked on the cowl to aid fitting.
