My 2019 build-off entry

Several ideas changed throughout the build, but it's finished after many sparks thrown, scraped knuckles, and a few cuss words. I built the frame out of two full size bed frames, engine came from a concession kart I traded for, stripped, and traded away, wheels and tires are from a couple lawn tractors I stripped down, pedals, drum brake, sprocket and steering wheel were scavenged from other karts. Only things I paid cash for are the pillow block bearings, the steel stock to build the rear axle, chain, and centrifugal clutch, and everything else was scrap steel.

Youth mixed with adult issues

Hello to all and definitely apologize for not being familiar yet with website lol if I’ve entered something incorrectly. Then again being young at heart doesn’t mean I’m a wiz as well.

Been building this from scratch for the last 3 years! These pictures are after the latest revisions. Predator 420cc Stage1 engine, Comet 40 series torque converter with spring kits and a forward/neutral/reverse gearbox (once you have reverse, you'll never go back!😎😎

This topic has been discussed before, but through the efforts of Half-breeder it has been revived again.

What we are proposing is a thread where members can post up pics of their finished kart or minibike. This is to give new members some inspiration as to what they can do if they put their minds to it. Something like ... "if he/she can do it, so can I".

What we are proposing is maybe a maximum of 5 pics, one maybe showing a before (if it wasn't a scratch build), and then a few pics of the final kart/minibike/whatever.

As a guideline for what you should/could put in your post, have a look at this quote from Half-breeder



Some of the points might or might not apply to your creation, but it would be nice to know as much about the kart/bike/whatever as we can

Please....this thread is ONLY FOR COMPLETED PROJECTS. This is not for store bought karts where you have not done any work to it. You can post your creation if you have bought a frame and restored it to factory/running condition

If there is anything I have missed, please let any of the mods know and we can rectify it

As the winner of the 2013 Build Off competition, Fabroman is going to be the first one to post his build off winner.


If I may add to this- please do not post comments or questions in this thread. We want it to simply be a log of completed builds. If you have a question of comment concerning a build in this thread, please feel free to PM the member that built it. Thanks- Doc

You've all seen it before but, here it is again:

Inspired by: Manco American Express (the little brother to the Manco Dingo)

Powered by: Honda GX160, 5.5hp stock, 5:1 gearing on 10" slick tyres, strictly road/track use

Engine Mods: Ported & polished 14cc head, Hi flow pit bike air filter & custom adaptor, Custom 1" header pipe & 40mm tail pipe

After seeing Fast Eddies AmEx Black thread I knew I wanted one but, being in Australia, I knew the only way I would have one was if I made it myself so, I started collecting parts &, a little over a year late, my creation won the DIYGK 2013 build off contest.

For more pick, see my build log...
Very kool nice and clean

I bought this as just a frame with no motor, no suspension in early may. I will be stripping it down this winter to add chassis supports and powder coat. Seems like every time I ride it I crack a weld on the frame from jumping it so it needs more bars added. This thing pulls the wheels up, I flipped it doing a wheelie also. Both videos are posted check them out.

Originally built with GX270 but recently switched to modified GX200. (recent pic of gx200 first - green and black added mud guards and upgraded suspension)
