I wish I had more to report but progress has been slow.. I finished the adjustable seat frame, changed the kart to a single seater, welded the pedal mounts on, added big plate gussets to the frame jog in the rear (as Jamyers suggested!), and started the final weld up! I also fired up the honda 8hp engine which runs but will probably need a bit of work.

I'm getting excited for the first test run!

Good progress, the steering looks more slow speed golf golfkarty than quick gokarty
Care to elaborate? Are you referring to steering wheel angle or kingpin angle?

I went with 7° caster and 2° camber. I want it to handle well at speed but also be easy enough for my son to steer at lower speeds. Emphasis on easy to steer. Perhaps this is why it looks 'golfkarty'.
