FlatRacer BMW Cafe Racer seat kit

FlatRacer BMW Cafe Racer seat kit

We present to you our new FlatRacer BMW Cafe Racer seat kit. Designed to fit all BMW R2v Airhead /7 Series (76-84) and BMW Monolevers (1985 on).

The FlatRacer BMW Cafe Racer seat was developed by us with the mission of producing a similar seat to the original 1976 BMW R100 RS Solo seat (aka seat an'half or 3/4 seat) albeit with a rounder, lower, sleeker and sportier seat cowl. We were adamant that this seat assembly had to look original and period, so we went to great lengths to keep the original cowl lower fillets and the rear recessed logo area for a BMW 70mm badge, which is included.

Fitted with an accurate replica of the original seat base, albeit modified to suit our seat cowl, made of GRP, for corrosion resistance and long working life, finished in semi-gloss black, for that original look. As per our usual standard, it is extra strong (5-7mm thick), thanks to be reinforced with 300/600gr/m2 woven roving (similar to yatch construction methods), flexible yet nigh on unbreakable. No more rusty seats!

The seat base is pre-trimmed and drilled to accept the original service booklet lid (sadly no longer available new from BMW).

The seat cover and foam were also inspired by the original designs but again, modified to suit this particular seat. The seat cover is made of very durable vinyl, as per the original, with a press pattern quite similar to the RS seat. The foam has the correct shape and density for comfort and good ergonomics (in fact, a re-shaped BMW dual sports foam).

Special care was given to the edges, drilling and fitting points, with each seat assembly individually checked and finished by hand by us. It includes our own upgraded laser cut 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 of the cowl, in stainless steel, pre-fitted

This seat is bolt on and locks and hinges exactly as an original seat. Straight replacement. This kit includes all the labour for trimming, drilling and pre-fitting all the parts, requiring only minimal paint preparation work (seat cowl) to fit on your bike.


This seat assembly is a direct replacement for all the /7 Series and Monolever original seats. However, please note that due to the design of our lower and shorter seat cowl, it is not compatible with the BMW rear tool trays, where fitted.
