Seat belts

Hi there,

My CB has no front seat belts.

When they left the factory, did they have them fitted? If they left the factory with no belts, i may be able to get away with it.

Does anyone have any pictures of a CB with front seat belts?

In the U.K, if your vehicle was manufactured after 1965, you must have front seat belts that restrict upper body movement in the event of a crash. Therefore lap belts are no good.

However, as the country buggy has no B pillar, i don't know where a 3 point belt could be fitted? I guess a race harness is one option but i'd rather not have one of those.

Any help/advice is much appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance.

CBs came with Lap seat belts. Belts became law in most Australian states by 1964 and manufacturers gradually introduced lap/sash belts by 1965. Anchorage points were not law until about 1967 and they were included in CB when sold.
How did they handle all the other open top UK vehciles from 1965 on.?
Hope this helps

It's just not the same without Bill...RIP mate...

I'd rather wear a Beetle out by racing it than by polishing it!
