recent swap meet find

2y ago


A recent trip to a local automotive swap meet resulted in a gem of a find. My son and I stumbled upon this traditional go kart (minus engine, brakes, and a seat) for $30. We couldn't pass it up, much to the chagrin of Mom waiting at home.

Can we get it Dad? Can we? Please. Please. Please. Please. Please. Please.

My son

We stripped it down, chiseled off decades of rust and gave 'er a fresh coat of paint. Today we took advantage of a discount at the local Harbor Freight discount tool store and found a 6 HP engine.

Whether a small block V8 or a 6hp go kart engine, there is nothing quite like putting an engine in.

Next we'll build a simple seat and take her out for an maiden test drive. Stay tuned!
