You are looking at a custom built go kart with a shopping cart cage body. This kart is one of one and professional fabricated. This item was used for promotions, this a a real attention grabber I no longer have the room because I am moving. This kart is not a toy for kids to be playing with the engine was machined and has hi preformace parts except for the exhaust that was left stock due to the noise. This item is great for parades, promotions or if you big into hot wheels this will look great inside your man cave. The cage and frame are completely powered coated and it has a custom seat cover to match. I am open to offers

That price is ridiculous. It is a $200 kart with a steel shopping kart welded to it

But it has a racing engine! It just looks stock to keep the noise down!

Oh... my... GAWD!

Are you kidding me? A freshened, factory fun kart frame- complete with scrub brakes, Harbor Fright- looking mismatched profile tires, rototiller and dolly wheels, and the basket part of a shopping cart welded on there- presumably to increase the scrap value.

$1750.00? I'm not from around there. Are shopping carts really worth $1600.00? Because... That's maybe $50 in frame and $100 in engine...

Unreal!
