It looks like a Lightburn that has been shortened, it had a wheelbase of 50 inches when original.the steering wheel is  not original , they had a hoop wheel.The wheels could be original,as i am reading their  spec sheet"6 inch pressed steel-split rim".The kart had a straight beam front axle, and the steering hoop is what they had looking at the pictures i have, good pick if you can get it,Regards Gary

Do you have an original shot of the Lightburn that you think that once was?

Paul. The ReSa with the Tillotson is probably one of my motors. I either run a pulse line into the manifold or modify the pump plate on the carb to take a pulse. Easy mod. I'll post some photos Tue or Wed. It doesn't have to be upside down but things fit better that way and it's easier to get to the tuning needles.

Can some tell me the photo of the resa engine running the Tilitson carby ,,from October 26 2017,, where dose the pulse line connect and dose it have to run upside down.

Both the Pro100 and the HKS would be very acceptable Karts, however there is a very heavy discussion going on at the moment in the overall Vintage movement with regards to the KT100's, and there are more qualified people than I to explain that one for you.

In SA I would suggest John Cutting, or Anthony Harridine seem to be "The movers" I don't have contact details on either but I am sure you could find them through the Mount Gambier Kart Club, or the South Australian Karting Assoc.

Overall it is a great movement that is growing with every event, and those people that I know Rave about the SA events and clubs so I am sure you will enjoy the venture.

I look forward to meeting up with you at an Event one day in the future.

Hi all I have just managed to get my old racing go karts of my father that were buried deep in his shed for 30 + years, I would like to rebuild them and join the vintage & historic karts for some fun and something to do. I have a PRO100 with a KT100s on it and a HKS which also has a KT100s on it. are these acceptable in the vintage & historic karts and who would I contact to join this club I live in South Australia
