Mine sit in my back yard they are usually fine and don't rust too much as long as I move them around and most of them I move and fiddle with all the time

Some of the guys use these stands, only suitable for "modern-type" karts I think. Pretty sure my old McCulloch kart is too narrow to fit...

My BRAT kart just fits under my work bench in the garage, so that's where it lives. Have to shove it in sideways though, can't just roll it under there.

Mine oftentimes stays in the garage, parked alongside full sized cars(makes it look small).
But when there's inclement weather like hail, I have to park it under the covered back porch under a tarp so we can park the two daily driver cars in the garage.

I got a barn. There's also another mower with a plow as well as acouple snowblowers and some push mowers. Oh and another go kart. The stuff in front is mine. Tractors and all the stuff in the corner are my dad's. I have too much stuff and not enough time now.Click image for larger version

Edit: stuff in front of karts was free other than the rotohoe and snowblower.

The finished one is stored at the warehouse at work, where we get it out on the dirt patch at the front. The offroad one I'm building takes up one bay in the garage, it's been a fixture for so long that a toolbox / racking etc have been bolted to the floor around it...so yer, I now have a 1 car garage and a workbay, this is life now.

Time for a bigger house.
