Yep that's a real hub!
Was a set on a kit of bits T37 in France a couple of years ago did you buy it?

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 .

A little bit to late ,I got 2 good ones . . What about welding the spline area and cut new splines ? Has anybody done this before ?

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 .
