Just read the ad: Engine mechanical good, no spark. New engine top end rebuild, no hours on rebuild.

It’s Mechanically good it just doesn’t run LOL. No hours on rebuild, no kidding because it doesn’t run LOL.

Says it has new brake pads and bearings, when it looks like the rotor and axle’s been in the ocean for 3 years. Gotta love Craigs list.

You’ll be into it for $1500 real quick before you get an engine package. Also sometimes they have used karts down at Millville.

Check the Nicholson speedway and Oreville web sites sometimes there’s a good deal on there.
