FlatRacer BMW Daytona tail kit

FlatRacer BMW Daytona tail kit

We are quite keen in short and sleek cafe racers but not so keen cutting up and welding frames.

With this mission, we have developed this FlatRacer BMW R2v Cafe Racer Daytona short tail kit, as fitted on our FlatRacer Mancha Branca project. It is designed to fit all /7 Series (76-84) and can also be fitted to R45/65 and Monolever frames with minor modifications. The kit features an elegant and sporty tail section, upholstered to our usual standards that will result in a really nice period Cafe Racer look, without altering the original BMW rear sub-frame. It comprises:

  • FlatRacer Daytona GRP tail section, pre-trimmed and drilled
  • Upholstered seat base, black vinyl, pre-fitted w/ s/s fasteners
  • Seat base polished alloy trim - pre fitted w/ s/s fasteners
  • FlatRacer 6" stainless steel rear mudguard
  • FlatRacer L679 alloy tail light assembly, pre-fitted w/ s/s fasteners
    • This kit incorporates the tail itself and an upholstered seat base, fixed by 8 stainless steel fasteners and finished with our trademark pleated black heavy duty vinyl seat cover and pre-fitted polished alloy trim. The foam has the correct shape and density for comfort and good ergonomics.

      The tail section is built according to our usual standards, it is extra strong (4-6mm thick) in the seat area. It includes our own upgraded stainless steel hinge, zinc plated steel locking rod and its conical rubber stop, plus two front rubber stops. It includes all the necessary fasteners.

      The seat base is pre-trimmed and drilled and fitted with rivnuts, enabling to be bolted or separated from the tail section quite easily.

      The kit is complemented with our new 6" stainless steel rear mudguard (six point fixing) that includes our own FlatRacer-Lucas L679 alloy tail light, all pre-trimmed, pre-drilled and prepared to fit straight on the BMW R2v Series /7, R45/65 and Monolever frames. It includes all the necessary fittings and stainless steel fasteners.

BMW R2v /5 Series stainless steel side panels

Originally introduced by BMW as an option for the later BMW R2v /5 Series and standard equipment for some USA models, these were not overly popular, not least in Europe where the BMW riders' taste was somewhat more restrained. Fits all the /5, /6 and /7 Series bikes.

These side panels are high quality stainless steel stampings, accurate replicas of the original albeit without the black painted stripes. Fits exactly as per the originals (a rubber band and the four tangs on the rear sub-frame, often missing). Very cool and period looking!

High quality GRP /7 replicas available, please click More info.
