"Doug, The shadow was about 76 and 25mm axle was correct. They did not come with a Nassau panel. Think hard about the original brakes ... I never found them reliable or safe until I replaced them with MKC units."
Hi tom bit of an up date on my old kart with a victa. Found some old 125s heavy porting one nealy finished it allso doing a spare. (photos soon). Allso have a mark 4 160 cc , Do you blokes race with these motors
Gday tom---a few days ago you mentioned that you can make stickers---i have started to assemble the victa kart and i saw the victa sportkart sticker you posted in reply to raymond---if you have some or can produce the sportkart sticker i would like to buy some from you---regards jack
Yes I am very interested, making the mod's don't realy concern me for running twin motors as I have quite an extensive workshop and access to other machines but what is the worry is that from what I read from Greg Brewer's post that I would have to convert it back to Sprint specs, the Road racing configured kart in the pic is the one I wish to run with but if there is no vintage class for it whats the use, anyway I will have to look deeper into it but can you send me a pic of it and how much you are looking for it. Mark Mckeddi has some clutches and the motors still around so I hope its still a viable project.
Have you started the frame for the MI kart? the side rails are quite time consuming. The Go Kart 400 plans you bought, were they from eBay for $10? as I got the same thing, I was able to complete my set, thanks to the help of a fiew people. As for the Ison plans and the Aus kart plans. If you have them on your computer I wouldn't mind taking a look.
The wheels I have already bought for my MI kart, I used steel wheels 4" front and 5" back with 450/310 slick tires. I am going with the dead axle and what I think is a 2.5hp Tecumseh (take a look at my photos!) I have been collecting period parts for the MI kart, even an old 1950s togle swith from a switch board for the kill switch. I will make a seat for mine, just a basic one like the go kart 400. Do you intend to race yours? I imagine you could, since it is a legitimate vintage.
