Default Hello from Oregon

1st time kart owner here. I posted pics in the build discussion. Just picked this kart up a few days ago. Go karts seem to cost more out here in Oregon. Most people want $400 and up for stuff that looks like itís been sitting in the rain for a decade and was a Walmart special to begin with. I got this project for me and son to work on together. He likes using any tools, welder, etc. I know absolutely nothing about go karts, so I will be relying on your knowledge and assistance while we get this thing up and running again. First order of business is to find a new wheel/tire and probably put a new carb on the motor. Seems like a solid frame.
Thanks in advance,

I used to live in the Portland area, so if something's been left out in the rain in Oregon, it must be soaked and rusty!
