Default Manco interceptor

I know nothing about this kart other than its wacky and weird live axel and 4 inch wheels i think and i just traded a decently built homemade frame someone made. Soo what did i get myself into?
I will get more later when i get home

Nope, he's saying he traded a homebuilt frame, and got the Manco Interceptor in trade.

Ok more pictures. So the wheels came off, i expected them to be stuck but they need keys i hope the axle will come out if not, i will have to make my own split sprocket and bolt it to the old one. I found pics on gewgle and they came with 4hp subaru robins and brush guards. I think this thing would be an awesome offroader! Its 212 time i think it needs more agressive tires too. This thing should end up pretty dang fun and its getting a cool paint job. Im gonna mask the floor pan off and clean it. Then paint the rest of the frame black

I actually picked up a complete running Manco Interceptor this past week and plan on doing similar to what you are stating here.

If you have a build sheet or parts list I'm intrigued! As this is my first time doing an overhaul on something small such as this. It's for my 10 y/o Son and the stock speed.... isn't enough!


(My first post lol)

Sir,

Any progress? I am highly intrigued!

My apologies for the late reply. I was called out to do mobile work (medical field... COVID =/)
