    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

    Thank you

    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 ....

    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.

    Those were good , fast single engine karts.

    Check out the youtube "vintage enduro kart racing" it has some good videos :cool:
     
  16. I have not owned a kart before, but the 100cc enduro karts look like this might be an addictive hobby.:D
    I've ridden and raced enduro's (bikes), and hare scrambles my whole life and thought "I need to try this kart thing".

    Pretty sure these engines are BMs. And that is no BS.
