Default Help me identify this frame please.

I picked this up as a little side project and plan on totally rebuilding it. I cant find any markings or numbers so I just wondered if someone could identify it. Thanks for looking.

I'm not sure but that chassis has a pretty uniqe lower steering column support design that should help ID-ing it. If you still have the front bumper, slide it back on the mounts and post another pic with it on. Sometimes those front bumpers really help ID-ing.

Does it seem have mostly Metric or American bolts?

In the first pics you will notice dual throttle cable and master cylinder brackets. The lower seat supports have been added to and the seat that was on it was very small. I assume it was set up for a child at some point. That would explain the weird lower seat mounts. I have already removed the extra brackets except for the seat mounts. It also had a flat motor plate welded to it at one point and I have ground off the crappy welds.

See if these pics help any more. I would love to determine what it is or at least approximately how old it is.

I forgot to add that it also had pedal brackets closer to the seat. I have taken these off as well. We already have a racing cart that my father has set up with adjustable pedal brackets for my 8 year old. This cart will be for the "big boys".

Man I know I've seen a chassis like yours before but I cant remember what brand.

See if it has any (or all) metric nuts and bolts?

Also try to mesure the rear axle diamitor with a caliper to see if its a 1.25" or a 30mm./35mm. This info might help us narrow down if its a European or American brand.

I'm kinda getting the feeling its an 80's era kart.

I cant remember anything being metric while taking it apart. Then again, my 8 year old did alot of the disassembly.

I'll measure the axle first chance I get to borrow a set of calipers.

That looks a LOT like my kart, which my best guess is that mine's a Trick/Olympic.
