This is my go kart, there are others like it, but this one is mine! lol... LOTSOFPICS

I just wanted to post up some pics of the go kart... give me something else to do...

I hope someone here enjoys! If you ever wanna ride together, hit me up!

This is the cart when I bought it, in fact I took this picture right before I paid the guy $150 for it. You can see the old engine, the old tires and the way the old seat was... This was actually a cart for kids... like no older than ten.


These pictures are of the new engine installed... I got it from harbor freight on sale $114, with tax... in these pictures you can see the seat is still made for a child...




Cutting the cart up...






And of course putting it back together! Bout time... (like 4 weeks later...)












Finished Welding, sitting on borrowed tires...



Painted, Still on borrowed tires...


Current.. with all the fixxings! Including Thomas the Train!!!!

My dad bought one just like that in the 60's.
Nice work! I especially like the hydraulic brake setup. Where'd you source that?
I have a 5hp Honda engine on my pressure washer that doesn't see much use. I often think that that engine would make an excellent cart motor.
I recently became a Grandpa to a baby boy, so maybe it's time to get crackin'.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

No videos. yes, i want to get a cam for it, but idk. it only does about 34mph at the moment, gets there fast though, i want to either mod it or buy an R6or R1 engine to put up there... like this guy. Couldnt make the video work right, but whatever...

the brake came from ebay, was about $34 shipped, and works like you wouldn't believe.

DAYYYUM! That think looks terrifying! I want it!

Dude is insane! Blowing through stop signs and such. Wish you could see the speedo on it better.... bet he got close to 200 km/h though at the one part judging by how fast the hydro poles are flying by (don't ask how I know ). Meanwhile he seemed to have some trouble keeping it on the road at a few points... or even in his own lane lol.
