it has an ajustable seat with a lever for moving forward and backward for riders of all ages. and the roll cage is removable. the engine is like new. you must see it to appreciate it.
Thanks for looking!!!

Well, I talked the kid down to $220. It has a bent axle, bald tires except for left rear, seat is wrecked, engine is running like crapola and the brakes are not working.
I LOVE IT!!!!
It is all I ever wanted and more.
The engine is going to get an oil change, new spark plug and the new muffler off my other engine along with the new air filter.
I am going to put the engine on my mini bike and run it on their for a while. I am going to strip the go kart and get every piece down to bare metal and then send it all out for powder coating. I am going to put new parts wherever needed and then get another engine or put it's engine back on it again.
I am going to be spending all day tomorrow out in the shed, taking the engine off the kart and doing the work and hopefully riding my mini bike.

You want the go kart frame instead? I took the engine off of it. Changed the oil and put it on my mini bike and ran it in the rain today. I so missed riding that thing. Go kart frame is under a tarp in the corner of my yard.

Austin,

I paid $220 and have since taken the engine off.

You read above what needs to be done to it right?

Make me an offer.


(You would have to come down and get it of course)

Very big. When I first saw the size of it in person I was like WTF. Look at the size of these back tires.

Between the need for an axle, new rubber and paint job I am leaning more towards getting rid of it.

I sold it last night. I put it on Craigslist with no pirce yesterday at 2-3 O'clock and had someone at my house at 7pm. He was very excited about it. I was very generous with the price to. I told him about this site also. He has another Go-kart and wants to get a mini. Nice guy, His name is Mike and is from Massapequa. Welcome him if he joins. Thanks.

That's a whole lot better than an extended stay under a tarp in the back yard.
I gave the kart frame I bought for the wheels and engine to a family of 4 kids who were advertising on Cragslist for a low cost or free go kart. This was a good deal all around.
