Naw. I have been flipping karts for a while now. This is, though, the most karts that I have ever had at one time. My garage and trailer looked so empty after christmas so I had to hurry and fill it with junk before my wife started getting any ideas like "now we have space in the garage for my car". I totally nipped that one in the bud.

Ill take some more pics this afternoon. Does anybody know where to find cheap parts for these old briggs engines?

This 2.5 hp briggs engine i really like and will keep for a future project. the throttle linkages are a little messed up and its missing the air filter housing and air filter. Are there any good/cheap places to buy this stuff for the older briggs engines (and the two 5 hp flatheads I have now)?

Here are the pics of that kart you were asking about. Its an old thunderkart seriously underpowered. The "new" seat is what my son put on it because he was getting antsy to get these things running. He just couldnt wait so he got some scrap wood from the garage and now it has a seat!

...and here is what I picked up today

subaru 6 hp engine with clutch and electric start!. Carb is probably just dirty, pulls great and the guy that sold it to me had kept it in his garage and he just couldnt get it to start again. I am going to put this on the orange and black manco that i got last week. He sold it to me for $80 thanks!

Comet 30 series TAV A guy bought this mini bike and it had it on it. He wanted it to look vintage/old school so he put a clutch on it instead. The TAV looks practically new with not much use at all. This is also going on the black and orange kart. He sold it to me for $60 thanks man!

I love it when people don't want something and just sell it cheap because they have no use for it.

The fact that TWO OF YOU are all over that really kind of scares me... Do I really want to know ???? No. I don't want to know; if you are so at someone that you would go there, it's better that I don't know, that way i can claim "Plausible Denaiblity"....

Holy smokes, gran_pann! No wonder carts are so hard to find around Dallas. You bought them all.

Honestly, you will see a kart run for $100 every couple of weeks. For whatever reason, 5 popped up one day and I just bought them all because I was trying to be like that all seeing eye, addicted, always searching for my precious.... cheap go karts that is... on craigslist. Nerd alert.

If you would like to buy one from me ill be selling 4 of them this summer completely restored for $500-$800 a pop. keep an eye out, just search for them; there are plenty out there. These ones i had to drive pretty far (luckily all south of the metroplex) to pick up. Plus now you have more of a chance of getting one now that I have 'stopped' looking for them in DFW.
