Default What holds the drive wheel?

I have been toying around with the idea of a gokart, and would most likely do onroad, so one wheel. I understand there is the wheel, attatched to a sprocket. There is then a chain from that to the clutch on the engine.

Could someone explain what the axle carrier looks like for the rear? I dont know exactly how I would lay it out on both sides.

basically on a funkart/road kart, you have something like 2 bolts welded perfectly on either end of a tube, and you that's your rear axle. then you put your rear wheel and brake asembly on one end and a free wheel on the other, attatch it to the frame, and there you are. atleast, that's what i'm doing.
