In Europe everything seems to ply relatively back to normal. The rest of the world is still fighting against Corona big time.
Contradictory the numbers are going up on the world scale.

One and another make that parts supply out of certain parts of Asia and also from South America are seriously delayed.
Thinking of our business and commitments to our customers it  feels like sad, but realizing what human tragedies are hiding behind this virus is way worse.

Let’s try and ban that crazy virus ! Let’s hope all people will heal soon and after that we can start back  to normal.
On a world scale we are  definitely not back to normal.

Nevertheless also this week we bring you a bunch of new products. Corona doesn’t make us freeze in a little corner.
It makes us creative and full of energy to fight against the virus, but also to make our VW world a better place and hopefully we can make it a better world everywhere.

For your split window bus we made all models door locking mechanisms up to 1963 (64-67 will follow shortly).
We used extreme accuracy to make these locking mechanisms exactly like original and are very happy with our results.

This is a perfect replacement for an original worn out locking mechanism and will help just anybody to make a perfect restoration.
We choose to make the entire assembly at once, to be sure that all parts correspond to each other.

No discussion about what fits to what, it’s a one piece replace everything.
Because of the quantity we made, we could push the price real low.

This is really top quality for a ultra-low price, easy comparable with NOS.
Very happy that we can bring you such a top product for such an affordable price.

If you own or you’re restoring a late ’62 or ’63 bus you will have noticed that this model has some unique features. As such this bus also sports one year only spindles.

As you may be aware, spindles need maintenance and depending on what life your bus had, it may be time to replace and improve the working of these important parts of your front running gear.

Over the years we found that  particularly for these spindles, it was hard to find any parts at all. The shaft on these king pins can wear out over time and it’s important that these are checked and refurbished/replaced when there’s too much play in them.

As such BBT has made an effort in developing and manufacturing the upper and lower king pins to ensure that your bus has quality replacements. These kin pins come with needle bearings and bush.

1337-505 – Lower king pin with needle bearing – Bus 08/62-07/63
