Made some progress on the stinger.
Not to threadjack but I am having trouble finding a reed cage (6 petal, radial construction pyramid) to fit up in my Go Power stuffer manifold. 1" 13/16 flange hole spacing - center to center
Thats some COOL karting! I could literally feel the ride with that helmet cam! Thanks for posting.
bought a mint hornet alleggro enduro frame last month was gonna sell off the tanks and make it a sprint type kart for the white knuckle scramble,,, after listing the tanks on ebay for 2 weeks without any bids but 200 looks and 45 watchers i got an email from the original owner of hornet karts from waco texas he bought the whole project and is gonna help me with building a sprint kart for the scramble,,, he said hes gonna start selling replacement parts for the old hornet karts,,,this guy is super kool and was willing to help in any way he could,,
Except for finding the correct rear tires I guess the stinger is finished.
Here is a picture of my Margay Newbreed. It is a 1966 model. Lot of great people in the Vintage Go Kart Hobby.

I am personal friends with Arthur Bentas who along with his brother Chuck owned Kavalla Karts back in the 60's. As a kid I had one of his Karts but like most of us, swapped it off for something else. Stupid me .....
These pics are from Arthur's personal collection. They made simple kids karts, single and dual engine versions, and as you can see in the attached pictures an endurance race version with huge saddle tanks.
I have more pics that I will post later ....
Ontario raceway 1974
I'm curious what motor(s) is in this cart.
If I remember right they are perillas ( about 7.5 c.i. rotary valve)
the class was "C-OPEN" no limit as to mods or fuel.
heres mine and now the grandsons.1978 lime limo.
Stuck in the chair at home and did this
Here's a pic of the Carretta I picked up recently. It needs a bunch of love.
Those were good , fast single engine karts.
Check out the youtube "vintage enduro kart racing" it has some good videos
I have not owned a kart before, but the 100cc enduro karts look like this might be an addictive hobby.
I've ridden and raced enduro's (bikes), and hare scrambles my whole life and thought "I need to try this kart thing".
Raced enduros for ten years, every chance I got. C-open till the last two years, then costs and work got in the way
More vintage kart pix put on Movie Maker
