Default Hi . . I'm Steve Lord

Hello Everyone,

My name is Steve Lord and am a 38 year old go-kart fanatic.

Long story short, my love for karts started when I was about 5 years old when my parent's neighbor (who was a mechanic) made a go kart out of "bed frame". From that point on, karting has been stuck in my head like a curse.

Anyway, I'm so glad I found this site!

Here are some pics of karts I've built. The yellow one is a shout out to my neighbor using the angle iron idea . . . outfitted with a Briggs 5hp engine circa 1960.
The blue one is made from an old Manco frame I bought six months ago, which had a lot of rust and needed some TLC. Yes . . . that's a Central Machinary 6.5 hp with the gas tank lifted off the top and placed on the back of the seat.

Thanks again for the great site!
