Default 2 carts for $45!!!

Well it will need some parts, but I can get one up and running rather quick. I have a full motor with torque converter and front tires for the one that's almost a roller. The other will have to sit for a while. Don't worry I won't chop these up, they will be for just cruising around on.

I will be picking these up on Tuesday, not sure what they are though. Any lend a hand at what these might be?

The two seater is a Carter Bros kart. The one seater looks like it may be a Carter as well.

Nice find!
I need to get that kinds of deal on a frame because J should be picking up a 8HP Briggs flathead today, I just don't have a project for it at the moment.
Unless I want to stretch my Radio Rod!

Agreed with FieldstoneDK and I'll confirm his correct guess on the second kart.

They're both Carter Brothers frames with live axle drive. If you want to know model name or number, that'll be $50 per kart service charge.


Hahaha, Budget Spunk weighing in with another unrelated post! LOL
Trying to get his post count up or something...

I'm feeling generous today, lol. The single seat frame looks like a Super Wheels® model 1215.
http://kartingdistributors.com/pdfs/carterpdfs/1215.pdf

The two seater/two passenger frame looks like a Hot Bodies® model 2435.

No way to be 100% certain since they're stripped and derelict.

Well I was WONDERING where you had gone!
This forum NEEDS a heckler, and Poboy is retired, now replaced by a combination of Hellion and Nosandwich.
Hellion does tend to be more active.
But it's always good to have the good 'ol POBOY around!

Robert took away Poboy's sammich (gave him the ban hammer)! What a sad day that was.

Nowadays he's on his best behavior. Neutered and house trained!



Sorry for the hijack, 5814SpeedCo. I love you, maaaan.
