Go Kart Time!

Recommended Posts

Ok, special thanks to a buddy in El Paso for taking time to snag this for me and keeping it at his house for a couple days until I could get down to pick it up. Last year I bought a 32 ford kart for my son. Well, work and life has gotten in the way and my son and I spent the day cleaning the garage and working on the kart. Its time I spend more quality time with the little ones and let other things aside.

Here are some pics of the kart. Chad was gracious enough to go over and look at it for me to ensure it was as good in real life as it was in the pics. Has tuck and roll interior. working head and tail lights. The previous owner never put it on asphalt but had it hanging up in his restaurant as a display. It never had a motor, live axle, pedals, brakes. Bought a motor today (harbor freight 6.5hp horizontal shaft $99.95). Ordering live axle, brakes, pedals, cables, clutch, sprocket and chain tonight so in 2 weeks he is out tearing up the asphalt!

these pics are of when Chad went down to look at it.
