Default I thought I recognized it.....

Another Starbird. *sigh*

But here's the thing, I recognized it right off the bat from here:https://www.small-engine-projects.co...kart-build.htm
That's funny!
I only know of one bright orange Starbird, so it just clicked when I saw it(I was literally just searching "bird engineering go kart" for the heck of it).
$600 is pretty pricey, but it's unhacked, plus it's got the original engine(Tecumseh flathead). Looks like they didn't hack up the original steering wheel, but made another one altogether(phew).
Pretty neat, but NC is awhile away.....

$600, Buy It Now. Now that's being optimistic. What a bargain...

I see he put the original wheel/handlebars back on for 'originality' but he should've done his research and applied a more accurate color. Black would be a good choice.

Not worth $600 IMO. For that kind of money I'd expect the OEM exhaust and air cleaner and some decals, at the very least.
