Default i no lets build a gokart....

i had an old gokart in my work shop and some spare time, so me and my brother inlaw fort lets make a gokart with a little bit more power lol.

the gokart started off life with a little honda generator engine in so we pulled that out , got to stripping, cutting, lenghtening, strenghtening and welding.

the engine that we are using started life in a honda cbr 1000cc, "throught that should have enough power".

so here's some picture's enjoy..

then had to line up the engine

Got the engine mounted in and now we've got a rolling shell

lucky enough i had a cobra seat lying around so we used that,

Then my mate jay made me an exhaust, cuz it was a little too load lol

i will get some more pic's uploaded soon it is kind of finished just need's tarting up a bit if you no what i mean.

there is a video on youtube if you care to take a look:
