Guess there are some differences. Didn’t have the full coverage body work and the wheels were 3 piece. Still should be less than $2500 though. The age of credit must have made it possible? Doesn’t seem like salaries have increased that much. I know mine hasn’t gone up hardly any since I started working full time in the mid 90s. I got lucky and won an auction on EBay for a new 2013 roller for $1625. There is no way that I could have afforded to buy a new kart otherwise.
