I got both for 70$ With a questionable engine that he says runs.

Dont really want the bike. This cart will be perfect for my vintage looking build. Any idea what model it is? Streaker s365 maybe????

Check out the cobbled up crossover steering and other homemade goodness. Anyone know where best place to buy parts would be?

The mix of square and round tubing makes me think it's a Carter Bros. kart, but I don't really know. The Honda clone on it looks pretty clean!
The minibike looks like a Baja Warrior. Pretty big bike.

I decided to build the bike. My wife said she thinks it would be more fun. Plus there are some issues with the cart that were repaired in ways I dont care for. Front driverside axle/spindle mount was cracked and welded zoom in to see. Underneath the engine they welded allthread to the bottom on one side I can only assume for a crack. Its solid as i was jumping prety hard on it all 190 pounds of myself but i just cant put much $ in to it with these issues.

That being said. The cart is on letgo and Craigs for cheap.

Coleman ct200u-ex is what the bike is.


One day I am going to build another and throw on a cleaner vintage cart.

On way from amazon for friday delivery.

Front/ rear bearings, torque converter, new chain, new throttle and brake cables, new throttle and brake levers and grip, rear chain tensioners yada yada.

Next thing is i am missing the bushings for the rear end.

With pipe frames one way to fix em is an insert that goes under the two pieces being welded, did it for a friend's kart after he broke the same piece off the front.
