I bought some 37 parts with hubs years ago . But this is a complete 37 and I must replace the hub , condition is to bad . Most original hubs are too bad to use , only found 2 good ones .

Very Naughty Udo ! However yes I have done something similar when I had two RH hubs and wanted one of each. I welded up the threaded portion and remachined the other hand. This was twenty years ago and the car is still driving as far as I know.

I believe this Bugatti hubs are not high quality steel like a chrome moly , it is this normal ad3 about 70 kg steel . So welding is no problem .
