      Our actuating levers are also made of stainless steel, laser cut in order to ensure a precise fit. These are adjustable by twelve points setting on both levers, allowing you to offset them to suit your preferred positioning on the frame.

In addition to the stainless steel fasteners, we have included in this kit 4 high quality rose joints, for ease of maintenance and extended working life. These rose joints will also allow some linkage rod adjustment in length and swiveling angle, which is quite convenient for different set ups.

We have choosen Taroozi foot pegs and levers by popular choice from our customers and friends who have pestered us for years to develop this kit featuring the ultra stylish and period looking Tarozzi pegs. We could have CNC machined our own pegs but it would end up looking too modern and bling bling, more associated with modern bikes and Choppers, not traditional Cafe Racers.

Outstanding period look, quality and durability, designed to fit all BMW R2v Series (typ 247) made from 1978 to 1984 (twin shocks). Our FlatRacer rear sets can also be fitted to the earlier Series (69-77) if the gear change lever is changed, (we are developing new levers for these earlier bikes) please contact us for more details. Similar rear sets are also available for the BMW R45/65 and Monolever Series.

Fixed pegs fitted with black rubber inserts are available at no extra cost; please specify this option at the check-out. Optional folding pegs (M12 mounting bolts, may require frame drilling) are also available at extra cost, please contact us for more details.
