What??? No details??!
Is it free? Is it even yours? Is it possible for it to become yours?
I'd take it for sure! A kart's a kart!

Details? lol, at 1st I was hoping someone would tell me.... I saw it there, asked and the reply was you want it? 25 bucks and better yet, my Daughter bought it and gave it to me as a gift. It turns out to be a Klipper Kart Sidewinder. It has a 5hp OHV Tec. engine and looks to have had a -belt to converter to centrifugal clutch to chain drive- that's missing. The motor will start but the carb's a mess. The pan's got some rust but is sound near the pedals And yeah, the seat has grass growing out of it, [should'a seen it before I plucked most of it]. I'm going to get it going for some fun but not to race.

And I need to agree with JT..

it's showing respect for the OP to not litter his thread with random stuff.

Jokes about german sausage are the wurst.

Is the kart home now receiving some TLC? Got more pics?

Next time, please make your inquiry blatant and direct like "what is it?" because people are truly baffled by "barn find?"

And your next words answered your own question (outside find).
