Man I just scored pretty **** good on what will help me with my build. My buddy has a bike and it's running rough, needs the carbs rebuilt. Well since I do carb restoration for old Jap bikes we are doing some trading. He's getting a free $300 carb service in exchange for this go-kart with Honda TRX400 front and rear suspension components! SCORE!!!!!!

It's a Manco Dingo....this should be fun! Unsure on what the engine is but it may be swapped with something Japanese in the Yamaha variety!!!

Well most of the work has been done, though I would extend or redo the cage to go around the engine too, mostly for aesthetics. If this doesn't 100% satisfy your needs, you could always pull the TRX parts off and reuse or modify them for your needs. I would use the existing frame as a template for a buggy, so that way you have an idea of where everything should go visually, rather than guessing along the way.
