    My Simplex Mark II Build

    SaltCoupe motivated me to share my current 1960 Simplex Mark II restoration project. I picked it up earlier this year and is completely stock/original. Other then a couple missing engine parts it's all there. It came with the original West Bend 580 with a Palmini intake, velocity stack and mega phone exhaust pipe. The fuel tank is in great shape but the floor pan will need to be replaced. I've attached a few photos of how it looked when I got it. I've done quite a bit of work since I purchased it, those photos will follow.

    Thanks for sharing this fine kart. Looking forward to seeing it restored.
    Has anybody seen the bridge?

    Here are a few more photos of my restoration project. Getting ready to tack the new floor pan and seat back in place. There's also a photo of some of the parts I blasted, primed and are now ready for paint.

    That clean frame looks so sexy. I'd almost clear it bare metal and call it a day myself.

    Looks good, man. It reminds me of my old Simplex kart when I was a kid. Mine was a live axle kart with an MC 6.
    Keep up the good work.
