Bus from the Inside Out Conversions
Mike Kadletz, Hwybus manager, first started operating buses his first year out of high school, in 1970 (The Pink Bus Line) in Orange County CA. The service ran up and down HWY 39 Beach Blvd., from La Habra to Huntington Beach CA. It was know as the “Beach Bus.” Mike was 17 at the time and has been in the bus business ever since. He started Bus Conversions Magazine in 1991, and began repairing and rebuilding buses around that time as well. In years gone by, Mike built several bus conversions for himself; some called the Moose Creek Motorcabins. This model and concept was a result of having 4 kids, with a lot of friends, which created a need for something that slept many and was, well… bullet proof. He also built several high-end limo buses, (his kids gong to dances) are still in service.
Mike has been buying, selling, trading, operating and brokering buses and bus conversions since 1970. With over 42 years of experience in the bus business, including operating a fleet of 22 buses in commuter service, school bus service, passenger stage and charter service, he knows a little bit about road buses, problems and conversion. And if that wasn’t enough, Mike founded Bus Conversions Magazine in 1992 and published and operated it until 2009. He also wrote the book, Bus Conversions, from the inside out, with over 10,000 copies sold. The Bus Conversions website he started in the 90”s, gets over 1 million monthly page views.
Over the years he has converted or modified hundreds of buses.
From complete conversions and modifications, including such things as cutting an Eagle bus in half and added 5 feet, raising the roof 10 inches and widening the bus from 96 inches to 102 inches in width. He has installed stages on the roofs, sound systems inside, and complete interior conversions.
And, not only did he build them, he used them! Went on 100’s of family camping trips with his coaches, where he found out what worked good, and what did not. To sum it up, many things that can be done to a bus, he’s done. With this experience, he can always give you advice on what works, what may not work, including the reasons why or why not.
