FlatRacer BMW R100 RS 3/4 Solo seat vinyl seat cover - 1978 Motorsport blue close replica
This sale includes:
- 1 x FlatRacer BMW R100 RS 3/4 Solo seat - vinyl seat BLUE cover ONLY
Accurate replica of the BMW R100 RS solo seat cover (also known as 3/4 seat), first offered as a standard fit on the firts BMW R100 RS (1976) and later available as an expensive option by BMW for their RS and /7 Series (1976-1984). The iconic and distinctive RS bodywork including this seat/tail was a design by Hans Muth, later of Target Design (responsible for the Suzuki Katana among others).
We've produced these covers in mid-blue, the closest match we could get to the Motorsport blue covers that BMW offered for their 1978 special edition (rumoured to be a cancelled order of 200 R100 RS bikes destined for some foreign government authorities).
Please bear in mind that originally, the Motorsport editions with blue seat covers had dual seats fitted with a cowl, as first seen with the BMW R90S . We've produced this 3/4 seat cover as an homage to the original seat. If you require a RS/RT/S/CS /7 etc. cowl type dual seat cover, either in black or blue, please check our listings.
The seat cover is made of heavy duty vinyl with a hot pressed pattern, like the originals. It is double skinned (two layers of vinyl) and padded to enhance looks (helps deepen pattern hot pressing) and increase working life. Sturdy, well made, well finished and very useful item to repair the often damaged originals.
We know how difficult it is to assess colours on a computer screen so we've included photos show the cover under harsh sun light and overcast skies and indoors so you have a good idea about its hue.
Standard BLACK seat cover also available, please check our other listings or contact us.
