Default Go kart help! :)

Hello, My I live in Canada in the Ontario area and am looking to get into go karting. Budget is the biggest problem for me and I was wondering if anybody could help me find cheap go karts or has one to sell or give! I don't care very much about any of the parts as they can all be updated later on, All I really care about is the frame as the is pretty important and harder to replace. I can do maybe 400 but I don't want to spend more than I have to. Any advice, ideas or karts to give?

Hello, I recently got into the hobby and am also on a budget. I got onto Facebook market place and searched every day and there was plenty of options in my area. I also got onto craigslist and there were plenty of options there too. I ended up spending 400 and got a running kart in great shape!

I don't know if there's Craigslist in Canada, but that would be a good place to start...

No problem. You should have some luck on the FB market place.

Its not the same kinda market here in Canada....
Mostly in the states where they were once/still being made, its common place for sales... here some people had bought them but not alot....

The FB marketplace, CL and Kijiji are the places to get stuff like that...
Depending on the type and size.. you might have to order from the US... Some other parts like drivetrain and the like parts can be sought at the Princess auto...
