My son and I built a kart from an old Chinese two-stroke kart for the build off in 2019 "Build Thread". It was lots of fun, but complaining neighbors relegated it to Grandma's house and we have not done much with it in the last year. Since that time he has grown nearly a foot and I notice the frame is bending under his weight and exuberant riding. We've decided to do one last round of updates in order to get it ready to sell as his interests have moved onto water sports. We could just freshen it up with some paint, tighten some bolts and call it good......but what fun is that? Instead it is getting race wheels/tires, billet hubs, new sprocket, aluminum racing seat and subframe connectors! Naturally, there is no hope we will recoup this added cost in the sale, but that's ok. Here are the teaser photos as we have breakdown complete and are getting ready for fabrication. The bulk of the fabrication will be changing the front spindle size, mounting the seat and adding the frame reinforcements. Wish us luck.

Oh, I forgot, we also never got to the custom 4-tip under cart exhaust my son wanted either. Now that we no longer care about appeasing the neighbors, we plan to build it without a muffler. It will greatly simplify the fabrication. We found a good testing spot far away so we should get a few miles in before selling it on.
