FlatRacer BMW R45 / R65 rear sets

FlatRacer BMW R45 / R65 rear sets

Our newly designed FlatRacer rear set kit, designed to fit the BMW R2v R45 / R65 Series made from 1978 to 1984 (Twin Shocks). It features:

  • Tarozzi fixed M10 foot pegs and pedals (other options available)
  • Zinc plated steel brake linkage pivot
  • Nylon pivot bush (replaces wear and slack prone original)
  • Chromed steel gear change 8mm linkage rod
  • Chromed steel short rear brake 8mm linkage rod
  • 4 x RH M6 rose joints
  • 4 x M6 stainless steel nuts
  • 4 x M6 x 25mm button head stainless steel bolts
  • 4 x M6 stainless steel washers
  • 4 x M6 stainless steel nyloc nuts
  • 1 x M8 s/s button head bolt, washer & nyloc nut, for RH lower sub-frame mounting, for more brake lever work clearance)
  • 4 x M10 Stainless steel nyloc nuts
  • 2 x M10 stainless steel washers
  • 2 x Stainless steel M10 large penny washers (spread the load of the foot pegs on the frame)
  • 2 x M10 nylon spacer/washers (fit between frame and pegs)
    • We have used stainless steel, nylon and bronze on our components for a long working life with minimal maintenance and reduced wear rate.

      Our actuating brake levers are also made gold zinc plated steel, jig assembled and welded to ensure a precise fit. The chrome linkages allow for positive actuation of the brake and gear levers.

      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.


In addition to the stainless steel fasteners, we have included in this kit four (4) high quality rose joints. These rose joints will also allow some linkage rod adjustment in length and swivelling angle, which is quite convenient for different set ups.

We have chosen Tarozzi 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 in our opinion it would end up looking too modern and bling-bling, more associated with modern bikes and Choppers, not the traditional Cafe Racers.

Outstanding period look, quality and durability. Please note that this rear set will NOT fit the later Paralever Series (R100R and Mystic) without further modifications.

Similar rear sets are also available for the BMW twin shock series (1970-1984) and the later Monolever Series (incl. R45/65 Mono).

Recommended products

We have selected few items that will work well with the rear sets, enhancing the riding experience, these are:

Tarozzi race clip ons

Race clip ons from world famous Italian maker Tarozzi.

Outstanding quality and presentation. Standard BMW R series forks fitment available, other sizes available upon request. Please note that your turning circle may be restricted and will need to be adjusted accordingly by the fitting of clip ons. Essential if using a cafe racer fairing such as our FlatRacer, Sprint and Ducati replica. Low rise and High rise clip ons are also available.
