Hi my name is Michael I live in Tusk county Ohio my first go kart was a old locked up 5 horse briggs fun horse go kart that my dad fixed up for me and it shook so bad that the welds holding the tubular frame were breaking. That kart ran until the day the throttle got stuck and slammed into a towing vehicle bending the frame into a c-shape. The only other kart I have ever had is a timberline crossfire 150cc which I hope to some day do a engine swap from a hewitt to a Lifan gy6 style engine.
Anyway if y'all have any questions I happen to know a lot about small engines and am on here quite often.

Evidently you like writing in blue!
Try black, it's a little less conspicuous.

I prefer writing in white, it's basically the definition of less conspicuous....Heheheh

Have you tried putting something under the bend and eithor strapping it down or have 2 people stand on it, see if you can get it to bend back?

Are you saying it’s powered by a 1995 Briggs and Stratton? Fun Power engine too, perhaps?

For what it’s worth, that is a gen-u-wine Ken-Bar S-465 go kart. Fix it up, cherish it because Ken-Bar is no more....
