FlatRacer Zeller fully upholstered seat (brown or black). FlatRacer BMW s/s hinges (pair) and BMW OEM locking spigot. All the necessary s/s fasteners and rubber bobbins & washers. The FlatRacer BMW Zeller kit includes our new, very rigid and reinforced short sub-frame using round steel tubing (oval for the centre brace and shock mounts) and a specifically designed Cafe Racer hump type seat. The short sub-frame has been carefully developed by us keeping its geometries and vital dimensions very close to the original sub-frame thus allowing to keep the original shock absorbers and our seat lower line smoothly and elegantly aligning with the fuel tank (compare with other sub-frame kits where the seat lower line is much higher than the tank). Uniquely for a Cafe Racer short sub-frame kit, our seat locks and hinges like the originals. The FR Zeller seat is very comfortable thanks to its high density foam with the an appropriate height. The high quality vinyl seat cover has its pattern professionally hot pressed in place to reduce the ingress of dirt and water for reduced maintenance and greater longevity.
The seat includes an BMW OEM locking spigot, stainless steel front and rear hinges plus s/s fasteners, making this conversion a fairly simple bolt on job. We can supply other types of seat covers, diamond/lozenge quilted or straight pleated, either in black or dark chocolate brown. As these are custom made to order, please do allow us circa 2-3 weeks to have this kit ready to your spec.
We can also alter one of our BMW /7 series centre tool tray and side panels to fit this kit. We can also pre-fit one of our rear mudguards/tail lights at extra cost. 1 - In order to lock the seat in place, you will need to retain and fit your existing seat lock mechanism. 2 - In order to correctly fit the original shock absorbers, you will need to swap your existing RH shock lower M10 mounting stud (bolted to the bevel box) by our M10 spacer/stud (supplied).
3 - Original BMW /5 or the later /6 & /7 side panels (not R45/65) can be fitted with our FR short sub-frame but may require slight trimming around the lock mechanism to suit. 4 - The original grab handle can be fitted although its angle will be slightly different from the original.
Minor mods may be required to suit this application. 5 - To fit the R45/65 RH fuse box, supporting brackets will need to be adapted/fitted (for example P clips).
