German wurst out a split window bus…


Wurst is still popular in Germany.

Back in the day you could buy it out of a split window bus.

0.95D-mark, around 0.50Euro, that must be a while ago…:)

Cheap wurst, cheap picture, enjoy your cheap Sunday!

BBT News


Aren’t we all tired of Covid?
Not so much about what Covid is, as we can’t change that..

But more what everybody has to say about it.
Seems like everybody is a doctor, specialist or scientist today (but still without a job).

We don’t know anything about Covid in BBT, hence we follow all guidelines.
But we do know about parts for  your Classic Volkswagen and hereby like to present you our product update.

Welcome to our weekly NEWS edition…

In cooperation with some of the finest bus welders and metal guru’s all around the world we had a lively discussion about doglegs.
Even though our dog leg toolings are perfectly made from NOS parts and our jigs are so secure, all buses seem to differ just enough that perfection is hard to achieve.

There are other brands doglegs, made from softer steel, allow to  “bend” themselves into place, but logic themselves, don’t give the rigidity your bus needs so badly on this exact place under your doors.
BBT SWT doglegs are stiffer as hell and don’t allow flexing, because your bus simply needs that strength.

So we decided to offer our doglegs in two different forms, click HERE for our assembled doglegs ready to fit.
Or check out here below our new unassembled doglegs that can be bought now and assembled on your own bus to perfection.

Make your doglegs fit to your bus, don’t make your bus fit to your doglegs.
BBT Silver Weld Through gives you the choice.

For T25/T3 Vanagon we add this piece of repair metal for the cab door step.

Always rotten because water, dirt and humidity have no place to go  under the rubber these are more rotten than anything else.

We supplied our small repair panel (left side HERE, right side HERE) for longer time but have now a “larger” solution…

The rear wheel brake cylinder for 57-64 beetles and Ghia’s we now offer  also from ATE brand.
We had a very good deal with ATE and offer these at incredible low prices with cool quantity discounts…

Wheels  for stylish cars like shoes dress a beautiful woman, and we don’t talk about the sneaker rage of late…:)
Your wheels deserve attention as they “roll you” wherever you want to go after all.

So we decided to take also these black lug bolt caps in our range.
Several basic model Volkswagens rolled off the assembly lines with this style black lug nut covers as standard equipment.

Now available at very attractive quantity pricing.
Our chrome lug bolt covers you can find HERE

2589-100 Bolt cap black – 19 MM each

We now have our own very private production from this ever popular toggle switch.
Still comes with screwed terminals and finished to last.

Originally to operate dome lights in convertibles manually, but also  dozens of other applications.
We have negotiated this production before Covid still at good old prices for raw materials, so we have a fairly good  sharp priced inventory with irresistible quantity discounts.

Huge main bearing order came in, Sintermetal bearing back available now!


We just received and unpacked several big pallets of Sintermetal bearings.
Made in Argentina, Sintermetal struggled, just as many others, to get correct raw material for their production.

Therefore we made a giga big stock order and we have all sizes back available now.
No steel backing but perfect plain main bearings for stock engines.

Order yours now.

How proud can you be?


Many moons ago milk factory Vitalac opened their Antwerp depot with two barndoor delivery trucks….

Brand new, who wouldn’t be proud to that!

Milk is the white engine as they say… VW powered that is!…

Happy sunday!
