Did charles manson repair the merry pranksters bus?

I recall reading in an unauthorized biography that Charle Manson encountered Ken Kesey while staying at a commune, and that Manson set them up with the bus that they toured in. Since then I have read other sources and noted the timelines don't seem to work out. I know that there are numerous urban legends about Manson and encounters with sub culture icons, is this biographers book correct?
