Default Hot Rod Go Cart

So my oldest boy is getting old enough for his first set of motorized wheels. I feel that he is gifted with a dad that can't leave well enough (like most of us on here) alone and get/build him a plain old go cart. So here is a call out for any pics you guys and gals have of some cool carts. Thanks guys.

I built this one about 10 years ago. It had a 8 horse Tecumseh snow blower engine,centrifugal clutch,snowmobile steering linkage and a Polaris snowmobile disc brake rotor and caliper engaged by a clutch master cylinder. It wound out at about 50 MPH when you had the balls to get it rolling that fast!

Check out this website www.stevproj.com/Carz/CycleKart.html Not really Go Karts but still pretty cool little machines. There was a thread on this a week or so ago.

Here's mine. Dad and I built this when I was 12-13. It had a 5 horse Tecumseh, which was mounted on a backwards wishbone suspended by motorcycle shocks, and panhard bar to locate the rear. The body, box, and hood are aluminum, the nose is a tractor gas tank. Front cross spring was from a snomobile and the whole front suspension was reused from an earlier cart project. I actually drove this on back roads about 8 miles to a car show on the MN / IA state line.
Later Dad confiscated the motor for his Doodlebug project, years later here it sits waiting for a transplant.

We bought one of the Yard Dogs used from a friend. First 5 minutes in the street, on the very first turn, Boy Wonder flattens the neighbor's mail box.

i had this one from when i was very little (thats me in the wagon) till i was 14 or so (me with the blue hat). Eventually riding it int he woods and us getting fatter the front spindles kept breaking and the frame was folding in half so we scraped it. Its evolved over the years as me and my brother messed around with it

Here's a couple of build pics of my son's latest courtesy of his Grampa. The chassis was originally built to be an early Indy style pedal car but pop's reskinning it as a RPU and it will be electric.

Not mine, but a buddy of mine built a go-cart around a 650 Yamaha combo. Went like a raped ape!!!! Took it to SIR 1 time made 1 pass then they kicked him off the track!! Wouldn't even tell him what the time was. Told him he had to completely cage and body it if he wanted to run again. You couldn't roll the thing if you tried, and he tried. It was so low if you seen a pebble in the way, you went around it. Other wise it would end up where the sun doesn't shine.

How's about a 1/4 Midget. This was from 95 or 96. Warm 5 hp Briggs. Would run high 9's lap times on a 1/10 mile dirt track. That's like 45 mph average.
Coil over suspension, locked rear axle, no clutch, push start. Hyd brake on rear.

Hear is mine got a great deal on it. Must be an race cart cause it has a clutch pedal and what looks like triumph motor mounts or some old motorcycle motor mounts. Also has independent front suspension. And and old rear axel that I was told looks like it came from a cushman trike but don't know. Any info would be great.

This is one that we started building about a year and a half ago for my 7 year old daughter. The more I thought about it, it seemed a little big and maybe too advanced for her so we bought her one of those Tractor Supply specials (Damn Nice Machine). Anyway she looks like shes having so much fun I've started re-building the big one for me-7 horse Kohler, scratch built belt drive system and 75 Yamaha rear disc brake.

My 9yo's current heap. Dug out of my neighbors backyard where it's sat for almost 20 years. Found an edger on the curb and pulled the little Briggs off it and tore it down and tweaked it, added a clutch and away he goes. Outruns his buddy's 6.5 governed tecumseh.



This is my current project for him. First welding project ever. Not shown is the steering assy. Working out pretty good and learning a new skill as well!

I have one I rebuilt for my son 8 years ago but that is not the reason I am posting.
The guy I bought the frame from had put it on a shelf because his grand daughter got her hair caught in the Torq-A-Verter and lost a big patch of her scalp!!

A friend of mine told me last month his niece had the same thing happen to her and lost almost her whole scalp!!!!

Build them safe!!!

Oh and the Torq-A-Verter or whatever the hell it is called is the way to make some major lowend pull and still have it on the top end,,,, try 30MPH with my 150lb ass in it!!!

Have fun!!!

Here is one I have been working on forever. I built the frame. It has recessed seating. I have a 450cc motorcycle engine for it. It will have rack and pinion steering, disc brakes and 25" ATV tires. I have newer pics somewhere...




Plans taken from a 1960 issue of Mechanix Illustrated.

Don't be concerned about it being fiberglass. If fiberglass was good enough for Ed " Big Daddy " Roth, it should be good enough for these types. Little Buddy should come first not a bunch of second rate critics.

Great stuff here. But I would not expect anything less of the HAMB.

It's a 3 year old post. I'm guessin little buddy does not fit in the cart anymore.
