Default Seat

Finding a seat to fit wasn't easy, Stewart. Our kart rails are really narrow. Plus the mount straps were offset in height. Front one was on top of the rail and the back one was welded under! All the seats on kart parts sites were either way too wide, or pricey racing seats.

Found this one and it's also adjustable.(And padded!) Metal seat pan was a plus, too as it didn't need any back struts for support - this frame didn't have any.

Had to make a plate for it (wood) and used rubber bushings in the back to make the mount even. You can see a bit of it to the left of the engine photo. LMK if you want a link for the seat - it was about $80 if I remember correctly...
