FlatRacer BMW Solitude tail kit

FlatRacer BMW Solitude tail kit

Our sleekest tail kit for the BMW R2v Series, it fits all the R2v Series apart from the BMW /5 LWB (1973 only) and the /6 and GS/ST and Paralever derived models. It includes:

  • FlatRacer Solitude GRP tail section, pre-trimmed and drilled
  • Pre-fitted stainless steel front hinge incl. s/s fasteners
  • Pre-fitted BMW OEM locking spigot
  • Pre-fitted front rubber bump stops incl. s/s fasteners
  • Upholstered seat base, pre-fitted w/ rivnuts & stainless fasteners
  • BMW 70mm alloy roundel emblem
    • The kit comprises our tail section, made of GRP for corrosion resistance and long working life, finished in gloss white gel coat. As per our usual standard, it is extra strong, typically 4-6mm+ thick in the seat area, thanks to be reinforced with 300/600gr/m2 woven roving (similar to yatch construction methods), flexible yet nigh on unbreakable.

      As per our standard practice with our tail kits, it comes with a pre-fitted upholstered seat base, fixed by 8 stainless steel bots and large penny washers onto the base pre-fitted rivnuts. This makes it easier to remove it for paint or repair.

      The foam has the correct density for comfort and ergonomics and the heavy duty vinyl black seat cover features our trademark pleated design, hot pressed in place to keep it water resistant.

      Optional pre-fitted seat alloy trim available at extra cost. Please check below for more details.
