Covid is back… number of infections raise dramatically and hospitals fill up slowly again.
In Belgium we would be “fully booked” on Intensive care if nothing change within 4 weeks…
France has an evening clock and Holland has a kind of lockdown, Belgium, right in between has today, Friday, its weekly meeting from all of our governments where after they mainly give a press conference with new measures. It reminds us to the tales of our grandparents, during WWII, waiting for the press release of Winston Churchill over the highly illegal BBC radio….
Where on war, but too many people do not understand.
Why don’t we find a balance, to live together with the virus until a good vaccine, or a good medication is found.? Why more or less measures and every week something completely different? Just adjust a little, and that’s it, keep distance, wash hands, keep people away from getting drunk and doing stupid things… so we can get through this war on a normal pace, not the hectic path they let us walk now. The only thing we miss actually to illustrate how hectic measures are is an air strike alarm… big horns and speakers, shouting out high volume siren noises to let panic everybody when a new patient is discovered with the Covid 19 disease ….real science fiction today, probably reality tomorrow?
For some reality today we like to present you the new products arrivals @ BBT HQ this week. Pure reality, no science fiction…and already on our shelves for immediate delivery…
Pure coincidence led us to this first new product this week
Looking for something completely else we came to an immense popular rebuild kit in Brasil.
The central King Pin (Swing lever kit) on the front axle of any Split window bus worn out regularly especially with insufficient maintenance (read; Grease!).
But also the power, efficiency and feeling of the steering is largely to be found here.
Therefor there is an adjustable king pin set now to adjust the play to absolute minimum.
It works, we tested ourselves and we will use it on any BBT bus from now on when needed!
The regular rebuild kit you can find under BBT # 1336 or for Baywindow bus under BBT # 1336-1
Buy and try one of our adjustable swing lever kits, you will not regret…

Because of corona measures we had a super bad infill for a large part of 2020…
Many factories suffered from normal production…. shipping lines sailed with half capacity because of infected or overworked crew to name only few….
We worked hard and we’ve been able to solve many many out of stock issues, so many products finally appears in our inventory again. The fruits of hard work from BBT purchase department.
Today we like to present tow real BBT products that we could get back produced after some internal factory problems.

BBT production to keep our services as steady and normal as possible..
From science fiction readily to today’s reality… in a war like this we have to be flexible and shift fast… BBT is ready and prepared…
