We can Adapt to higher gas prices !
Convert your car into a Hybrid !

Your existing Car, Truck, or SUV can be converted to a hybrid vehicle economically. This blog will share my ideas on how to make that possible. See the PES Wiki for all the background on Hybrid Adapters:

HYBRAD Motivation

Many folks have asked where I came up with the idea for the Hybrid Adapter.

Well -- here it is -- the Cement truck. The engine is in the back and powers the drivetrain and the mixer.

So my Dad calls to tell me he's found a "used" motorcycle yard at "Cycles R Us" in Medina, Ohio


So here we have the beginnings of a Cat III hybrid adapter -- Thank You Cycles R US for the good deal for what was left of this Kawasaki Ninja:

"swing...arm and miss, strike one"

So I've been calling all around Dayton Ohio -- looking for a wrecked motorcycle in order to build a category III hybrid adapter.

I finally found a place called "Roddys" Motorcycle shop -- in Jamestown Ohio -- reportedly they have dozens "out back".

So I go there today -- and I got my first disappointment to find out "Rowdy Roddy Piper" doesn't even work there.

Anyhow -- before I could get out of my mouth what I'm looking for -- the guy behind the counter tells me to come back when I'm not babysitting......yes -- I had my kids with me.

Now, as a parent, I am sensitive to kids running amuck and tearing up a place -- but indeed mine were not.

I realize these motorcycle folk are serious-- and it's "men's work" to ride and work on bikes -- but I'll take my business elsewhere.

I wish all the best to Roddy in Jamestown.

If You Build It?

I have realized that I must build a hybrid adapter, thus converting my vehicle into a Hybrid.

People need to "see it to believe it".

I was hoping my drawing would be enough to motivate others to build one -- but it hasn't been enough obviously.

Stay Tuned......

Down Force

For the Cat II or Cat III hybrid adapter to work -- a force has to be placed on the wheel assembly to keep to rubber on the road. This can be easily accomplished with an air strut -- air pressure can be controlled with an on board compressor -- both components are affordable.

Cat III Hybrad idea

Attaching an electric motorcycle -- minus the front wheel and suspension ---to the back of your SUV or pickup truck. This bike has 18 HP -- plenty to help push your truck around town and increase your MPH.

Category II hybrad idea

Using the spare tire location for full size pickup trucks or SUVs is a great place to install a Category II hybrid adapter. It could be made to be entirely self contained, with control wiring and mounting hardware the only needed modifcations.

Hybrid Adapter idea

Technology advances with outboard boating motors make them very good candidates for external HYBRADs. Some of these systems can have 200 Hp.

How do we convert them to Ethanol?
How do we get that power to the road?
