I am looking for a mid > late 90’s Tony Kart race suit and also a mid > late 90’s Tony Kart in its hopefully original condition (no bandit orange re-paint jobs) :) A complete with engine would be a bonus. Condition is not a big deal since I plan to restore it.
Please let me know what you have or if you have any information of someone that does and looking to sell.
I have the exact same kart as Glenn’s replica. Mine is a ’96 Esprit, original breadbox pods and nassau panel. Extended front porch on it. I did just sandblast it and repaint it last week to the closest shade I could find to the original OTK green. I have the original wide spacing engine mount as well. The nose on the kart is not original, but I see them for sale on Ebay occasionally. Located in NY, if interested in seeing pics I can send some over tonight.
Drool! Now that’s funny! I read the whole article about the Davidson restoration, he did an Extreme and an Esprit. Made me want to go through mine and see it on the track again. I found a 2000 Tony Kart Racer that had been standing against the wall in a pool shed since the fall of 2000. Had only been on the track a handful of times its first year. Kid lost interest, so dad stored it away. The “kid” is now in the Marines and is a full grown man defending our country overseas. I raced that kart last summer. I hate to see good karts waste away, I would rather the owners sold them cheap to someone just starting out so another kid can enjoy the sport too.
