Welcome, we love VWs!
Thanks for checking us out! We still have some things to come including great new accessories and parts, but hopefully this gives you a good idea of what The Buslab is about. We are the Bay Area's Volkswagen Van specialists, and have just moved to a beautiful new space at Adeline and Stanford in Berkeley. We are experts at repair and restoration of your Vanagon, Bus, Bulli, Transporter, Type 2, Westy and Camper (or whatever else you like to call it).
We can work on any vintage Volkswagen Bus, from 1950 on up, and also on any other air-cooled Volkswagen automobiles. From simple tune-ups to the Subaru engine conversion, we can get your faithful VW running and performing like new.
We provide excellent service at a fair price and guarantee our work. We're open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Give us a call at: (510) 658-6400

A great introduction...

It is unique in its ability to provide a great support platform for outdoor recreation of all types including travel, camping, gear storage and overland exploration.

Subaru Conversions are our specialty
There are a lot of Vanagons driving around with Subaru engines, many with tens of thousands of trouble free miles. We did not invent the Subaru conversion, we simply are trying to improve upon it and make it as clean and efficient as possible. Learn More...
