Default Hello from Canada!

Hello! This seems like the best place for some go kart info =]

I found this cleaning out a garage and I have no clue what it is other than half a Rupp. I don't have plans to rebuild it, what would be a fair price as it sits?

Ahh, a classic Rupp kart.

Worth? Whatever someone is willing to pay you.

In Canada you can usually sell things for a bit more because of lack of availability

well thanks to the sticker.. no doubt about it being a Rupp Model K enduro
Puts it in the early 1970s (Model J was 1968... so later than that for sure)

Seen a single rupp turbine front wheel selling for 100
and nearly blank chassis for almost 1k

And if I had to put a pricetag to that thing
it'd be between 1000 and 1250 w/o engines.
assuming you still have the rear axle and wheels..

if you have the seat padding add 250 (1250-1500)

if you do not have an axle or the rear wheels remove 250 (750-1000)

check out lostenduros.com
maybe you can find some usefull info there

and here a Model K Ad for your viewing pleasure:

Oh look bare chassis (no nothing)
still asking 325 ..add supports and beams, tanks and front... yeah 750 or more is reasonable IMHO
