    Good question. I have the same question regarding sprint karts.

    Generally I think 1987 and older.

    Here are a couple sites:

    Tim,

    I agree with Morgan, 1985 or 87.  No full bodywork.

     

    A lot of it depends on the engine.  Here is the AKRA Enduro Vintage class description:

    Engines: Any American made, fan style kart engine (100cc and 125CC McCulloch, 135cc West Bend), Or Non Fan – Yamaha KT 100, ARC, Dap T-50, TKM BT 82, PCR PP-100, PRD (Stock Only)
    Weight: No minimum weight
    Pipe: Any pipe, Horstman is the only wet axle clutch allowed, all other clutches allowed.
    Fuel: Open Fuel

    Vintage Unlimited Final 1; Final 2

    Competition Age: 15 and up
    Engines: Any 100cc–150cc. (Open Modifications, Any Carburetor allowed),
