Western Europe had some really nice, cozy and warm spring weather lately.
Our beloved classics leave their winter barns and start cruising.

BBT tries to help to make that cruising’ as smooth as it gets.
Our parts are made for our own Volkswagens.

A love and passion we’re glad to share with all of you!
Welcome to the BBT NEWS.


Bus seats are important to carry your passengers the safe way.
Quality of hardware for middle and rear seats went down a LOT by most suppliers.

As our regular long-time suppliers let us down, we had to find alternatives.
We teamed up with other people in the VW industry understanding our needs.

 We are proud to launch today real cast iron middle and rear seat mounting hardware.
Exactly as original that is!

We all know that quality comes at a price, we choose safety first!
After all these seats carry your beloved ones, just imagine!

Clamps for 67 and later buses come with a notch, to keep them in place.
Here your seat frame has holes to receive that notch.

Measurements are from bottom to the top surface where the (wing)nut comes.

Besides the four well known different clamp models there is a number five as well.
Volkswagen books and literature are incomplete and vague,

We had to discover by research on original buses.
Used in standard buses up to 67 delivered without rubber mat.

As this application does not use BBT 8072-040 mounting plate the clamp is made higher.
Choose your clamps for perfect fit and transport your beloved ones the safe way.
