Raask Rearsets for 1970-1984 BMW Boxers

Got a BMW airhead you’re trying to modify into a cafe racer? Here’s just the ticket for getting your feet into the right position. Some used Raask rearsets have come up for auction on eBay, and they are ending soon. The controls are at $272 with 7 hours left, and they appear to be in good condition.

The seller claims these will fit the BMW R (Airhead) models from 1970-1984. I’m no expert on BMW bikes in general, but I did a little research and these should fit (at a minimum) the /5, /6, and /7 R series. The Raask website is really no help, but it does cut off the fitment at 1980. Perhaps the frames are similar up until 1984 and they’ll fit. If anyone knows for sure, chime in and let us know.
