Default Razor go-kart restoration

My friend found this old razor drift force in the trash and he had nowhere to put it so he gave it to me. I plan on putting some small motor probably just a 24v and an old hoverboard battery on it or just use the old lead-acid batteries that eligibly ran the motor. PLEASE HELP ME!

I think Razor's karts are pretty cool. As I type this, my 2 kids 8 and 10yrs old are riding Razor Ground Force Drifters on recess for their COVID-19 home schooling. They don't realize how lucky they are!! :-)

After plenty of hassles with the stock lead acid batteries, I upgraded to a single 24V Lithium Iron Phosphate battery I found on eBay. Everything is better as a result.

I am going to do a complete resto on this kart, new engine, battery, paint, remove most of the rust and then probably sell it or race it up against the wooden go-kart
