New member here. I got an old carter a while back. Fixed some issues and replaced some parts. Now that I got it running good I kinda lost interest in it. Probably going to try and sell it. What do you think it's worth?
Carter go kart
Predator 212 engine
Aftermarket air breather, exhaust, carburetor jet, new pull rope and no governor
Torque converter
Extra tires
Engine runs great
Needs brake cable adjusted or replaced
I rode it once but not very far or fast since the brake cable wasn't tight.

Fix the brakes before you sell it and you’ll get more for it, not to mention you won’t have someone getting hurt on your conscience

I look on Craigslist for go karts, so I'd list it there. I know for a fact that well priced go karts move FAST on Craigslist.
Fix the brake, and I'd say about $300 to $400.

Looks like a pretty solid setup! Good tires, torque converter, and a Stage 1 ungoverned Predator! Cool!
