FlatRacer BMW Spandau tail kit

FlatRacer BMW Spandau tail kit

Our first and most popular BMW tail kit, an improved replica of the 70's Knoscher tail. Fits the /7 Series and Monolevers, it can be made to fit the R45/65 and /5 SWB models with modifications (contact us for details). It includes:

  • FlatRacer Monza GRP tail section, pre-trimmed and drilled
  • Tail rear mounting bracket and stainless steel fasteners
  • Upholstered seat base, pre-fitted w/ stainless fasteners
  • BMW 70mm alloy roundel emblem
  • Cat eye tail light/alloy plate holder, pre-fitted
    • The kit features our tail section, made of GRP for corrosion resistance and long working life, finished in gloss white gel coat. As per our usual standards, 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 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 seat cover features our trademark pleated design, hot pressed in place to keep it water resistant.

      Optional pre-fitted seat alloy trim (shown) available at additional cost. Please check below for more details.

      We can also fit a OEM BMW lock spigot, two front rubber bump stops and a stainless steel front hinge at extra cost. This makes it easier to access to the battery and for the tail removal. Please check below for more details.
