BMW /5 Series Short Wheel Base SWB (70-73) replica seat cover + foam repair kit

FlatRacer BMW R2v Airhead Boxer /5 Series Short Wheel Base SWB (70-73) replica seat cover + foam repair kit

This sale includes:

  • 1 x FlatRacer BMW /5 SWB replica fluted black vinyl seat cover with white piping
  • 1 x FlatRacer BMW /5 SWB replacement replica seat foam


This kit includes a heavy duty black vinyl replacement seat cover, the fluted pattern type with white piping seen on the earlier BMW /5 Series with short wheel base frames (aka SWB).

The kit also includes a replacement seat foam, which is an accurate replica of the original BMW item, with the correct density (not too hard, not too soft) for comfort, especially on long journeys.

Fits all the BMW /5 Series models with short wheel base frame (SWB), made between 1970-1973.

To distinguish your frame is quite easy, open your seat and look at your sub-frame. 

1 - If you have a single centre brace tube (with the lock plate welded to it), you have a SWB. 

2 - If you have a sub-frame with two centre brace tubes circa 2" apart, you have the LWB type.

Very useful kit that allows you to restore the original seat, keeping your bike's authenticity.

Separate seat cover and complete seats are also available, please check our other listings.


Fitting these seat foams and covers requires a certain degree of knowledge and skill.

If you are not comfortable with this type of work, we would suggest entrusting the job to a competent local trimmer to you, versed in motorcycle seat repair work.


Please note that this kit is a bulky item with a high volumetric weight thus the higher shipping costs.

We will very gladly combine shipping costs. If you wish to purchase any other items from us, please do let us know and we shall provide you with accurate costs including shipping.
