Default Hello everyone

Im no to the site and gokarting. I got this gokart recently from a family member.(its been passed down through my family for years) So I fixed it up a little since getting it. It has a new 212 cc predator. I plan on re sheeting it and doing some modifaction this winter but for now it is to be driven.

Thank you. I have been wondering the same thing as to what brand it is. I will have to ask my Grandpa, good for me he is the original owner. I do know it had dual engines from the factory if that narrows it down. I will give my Grandpa a call later today and get the information on it!
