I started Wagenswest around 2000 after seeing the need for better Bus suspension parts. My Name is Nate Curtis, Born In Long Beach CA, I then grew up in the custom hot rod and metal melding culture of Southern California, My Father was an old school car and bike builder that rubbed elbows with the likes of Big Daddy Roth, I could often catch Mr Roth driving his pin striped Honda Civic down my street, with a big ugly man sized rat fink in the passenger seat. I like to think that this kind of creativity rubbed off on me a bit. In the 1990’s I moved up from the Inland Empire to Salem Oregon, I found a ton of VW buses that the hippies brought up during the 60’s and 70’s. What does a boy from LA do with a bus? He kicks the hippie out, slams it, then goes and scrapes off road reflectors. Now my goal is to build the best bus suspension that can be found, constantly improving is the name of the game at Wagenswest.

This show wouldn’t be possible without the hard working curmudgeons bellow.
