    Default Retro Radio Flyer Go Kart For Sale

    Well it’s taken me way to long to finish but life gets in the way of my hobbies.
    Just finished and want to sell to move on to other things. Best of everything went into this to make it "Old School" but keep it very usable and safe. Has lots of torque and speed. It will pick up the front wheels and carry them just about as far as you dare. Give me your opinions please.

    Electric start Honda clone 6.5hp motor
    Governor removed, header and open air filter
    Frame is made from 1" sq. tubing
    Posi traction differential for rear
    Billet MCP kart racing brakes
    TAV 2 Torque-A-Vertor/Overdrive 10%
    High gearing of 10t x 40t #40 chain
    Header 1" exhaust
    130 cca battery
    New Paint and all new parts.

    Need to get $1600 out of her as that is just about what I have in it. Man my labor prices are just too cheap! If you paid someone to build this it would be in the $3000 range for sure.

    I agree, very nice clean wagon looks great.

    Hard to put a price on a labor of love.
    Man! I hope this works.

    Thanks for all the good words guys. Ive had lots of comments and lots of people say they will buy it. But shipping is the tough thing to get over. But as always money talks and BS walks. It will sell soon Im sure....

    Default Just a stupid question?

    How much was the shipping, if that is not too personal?

    Not sure, it was up to the buyer to ship.

    Default shipping

    shipping was $189.00 after a great deal of shopping around. Freight companies are nearly impossible to deal with unless you have an account with them.

    Dayton Freightlines tried to help with the shipping process but failed to pick up on-time. The next morning I called Dayton to see what was going on and the Expeditor/Dispatcher didn't know what I was talking about. (Beat head against wall). Thanks to Chris crating everything up for me and Ideal Machinery making up the bill of lading I was able to get UPS to take care of everything.

    I'll now have a cool Radio Flyer Kart to help me be more mobile at car shows and at the race track between the pits and the starting line and concession stand. It's going to be a hell of a conversation piece thanks to Chris' mad skills and mechanical genius. Now I need to build a hitch to pull my kid in his wagon.
