Default 2 karts. $400

https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/...360554180.html. I can get both karts for $400 but it is a two hour round-trip for me so not sure if itís worth it??

Two hour round trip? You must be in a mighty populated area to be spoiled like that... where I'm at, there isn't a town with more than 1500 people within an hour. Anyways, I think it's a good deal. That dingo (the second one, with no roll cage) is a fairly sought after kart.

Also, it's nice to put actual pics on the thread because sometimes people look at the thread later on and all they find is a dead Craigslist link

Have you ever thought there is such a huge lack of civilization around you for a reason? Mitchum,Sure, Right Guard, .....Pampers? Just kidding, man. With the hardships of isolation, also comes the serenity of isolation. You should get a car, and you can make it to the next town much quicker.

I'm just teasing...because I'm jealous.

Oh, I have more than a car. I have a hemi

Which also means that I get 14 MPG on a good day, so usually I can't make it to the next town before I need to refuel

Also, I apologize for the off topicness. Back to go karts!

A two hour round trip??? That's nothing!!! If you said one way then i would start thinking about the distance, but even then i would still go for the deal

You aren't going to get many deals as good as this one

Oh waaaahhhh a 2 hour round trip.

Seriously, that's like my daily commute, so stop whining.

Round here, you'd have to drive twice as far to pay twice that much for half the number of karts, in half s good of condition.

I recently did a 350 mile round trip to pick up two karts from separate locations & they're nowhere near as good as those; do yourself a favour, MAKE THE TRIP!

75 to 80 miles each way?? Tell them $300 for the pair!! If they are still available make sure you let them know you want them and if they will compensate you for the distance you will travel. This is why I have my items delivered to me and i pay extra for compensation of fuel and time. OH, and I don't have a truck.... Not worth $400 as they need a lot of work and that old worn out Tecumseh has gotta go.............

City people. Takes me a half hour to get to the store. And im still too close if you ask me.

Buy them, clean one up over the winter, spray paint it, ask 450 this spring. End up getting one for free. Unless you want both. Its a great deal.

Hey, uh, you mind if I cut to the chase here, Dustin2017?
Did you buy these things yet? I see the ad is still up as I write this....(knock-on-wood).

And yes, the semi-roll cage on the Manco is factory OE. It's referred to as cage-over-engine.

Out of boredom, I am posting the rest of the pics here for documentation and for "representative of type" purposes.

One thing I saw that was interesting is that one of them sports a sticker advertising the now-defunct Kart World. That outfit was the de facto source for go karts, mini-bikes and all their parts, I guess before the age of the interwebz.

I wonder if the boat's for sale too?
