Default The Desk Kart

What do you do when you have an old school desk and chair, a 6.5HP Motor and a bunch of metal laying around?

You build a go kart.

You ought to build up the motor a little bit, throw some fat slicks on it, add whitewalls to the tires, and give it a bit of a old school hot rod look.

Maybe a bit of von Dutch style pinstriping with "Gettin' Schooled" painted on the side.

Makes me want to crack my back. Those desk chair backs are the the perfect height for those hard to crack places.

Cool build.

Funny you say that, I'm actually a custodian with the local school district, so up until about three weeks ago this desk was still being used and it has it's original "school art" still on it.


As for the ugly waxed linoleum tiles, They're going to go on sooner than later.
