$100 for the kart, no clue who makes it, mini rocket was free along with delivery. The predator runs smooth, but the minibike doesn't so not sure what I'll do with it. Kart will be my next giveaway kart once it's fixed up and those HF wheels are added to the pile. I think I did good, pay for a predator and get everything else essentially free, he brought a tank to replace the smashed one too.

Score!! :cool:

Lemme guess, the pocket rocket is a little 2 stroke engine?
Looks like a Carter Bros. kart due to the square front axle, odd pedals, and odd seat back.

Why is the tank crushed???:huh: Kinda worrisome to wonder, but hey, he was pretty generous!

Yup, junk little 50cc, I think, two stroke. It turns over, but not well, may use the disk brakes but not sure how I'd put the rest to use.

I was leaning toward Carter bros myself, but it does remind me a little of a manco 405, just seems way to small and has a "roll cage", don't think the 405 had one, ever.

The pocket bike is a yard ornament for now, my kids crawl all over it. Little do they know they will never ride it lol.

Hey id save the bike its in great shape compaired to the ones here take it apart and fix er up

If I did, I'd put a 4 stroke in it, and all the plastics would come off, they are all cracked and broken. Considered using the wheels and tires for a motorized stand up scooter. My wife wrecked one like it when she was younger causing permanent memory loss, most of me wanting to take it apart and salvage parts is because of that, plus I've got a real bike to ride!

The brakes shouldn't be too hard. They're bicycle calipers as far as I can tell (I've got one similar to yours).

It's got little disk brakes front and back,identical to the $15.99 calipers on Amazon. They'd be great on my build-off project.

A little late to the party here, but I can ID the kart {somewhat}.

It's a kart made by Brister's Thunder Karts, Inc. of Roseland, Louisiana {now defunct}. I think people just call them all Thunder Karts.
This is a similar one that KartFab refurbished...https://kartfab.com/vintage-go-kart-restoration/bristers-thunderkart
