FlatRacer BMW Zeller Cafe Racer short sub-frame & seat kit - /7 Series& R45/65 1976-1984

FlatRacer BMW Zeller Cafe Racer short sub-frame & seat kit - /7 Series & R45/65 1976-1984

Our FlatRacer BMW Zeller Cafe racer short sub-frame and seat kit, designed to convert all the BMW R2v /7 Series and R45/65 twin shock models (1976-1984) into a period looking Cafe Racer, without losing practicality and comfort.

This FlatRacer BMW Zeller kit comprises:

  • FlatRacer BMW short sub-frame kit
  • FlatRacer Zeller fully upholstered seat (brown or black)
  • FlatRacer BMW s/s hinges (pair) and BMW OEM locking spigot
  • All the necessary s/s fasteners and rubber bobbins & washers
    • The FlatRacer BMW Zeller kit includes our new, very rigid and reinforced, tubular steel short sub-frame and a specifically designed Cafe Racer hump type seat that locks and hinges like the originals, which is very comfortable thanks to its high density foam with the appropriate height.

      A straight pleated or lozenge quilted seat cover is available either in black or dark chocolate brown high quality vinyl (state your choice when ordering). The seat cover has its pattern hot pressed in place to reduce the ingress of dirt and water for reduced maintenance and greater longevity.

      The seat includes an original locking spigot and front and rear stainless steel hinges and fasteners, making this conversion a simple bolt on job.

      Please note that you will need to retain and fit your existing seat lock mechanism to our sub-frame in order for our seat to fit correctly.

      We can pre-fit as an extra option (£34.99) polished alloy short front side trims to the seat, if required. Please contact us for more details.

      We also offer as option our new centre tool tray, based on our own GRP (fibreglass) replica of the original BMW /6 & /7 tray. This tray is modified and trimmed to suit this application and includes all the required fittings and s/s fasteners. Please see below for more details.

      We can also supply, pre-trim and pre-mate one of our mudguard combos to suit this kit, including or not a pre-fitted tail light and indicators of your choice.
