When I come through there the end of June us two old duffers ought to be able to get that cart down. 

Then I will take it with me.  :D

Heck yeah, if you have time stop in! What brings you out this way if I might ask? I put the darn thing up there haphazardly with a come-a-long about 12 years ago now. Gravity can help get it back down ---LOL! It's actually hanging on wall hooks between rafters.

 

Put on your helmet, fasten your seat belt and go for it!   That left side already looks like you were racing at Bristol.       Rick

My track was a 300 foot fairly good banked dirt oval in the back yard and when I had to shut down racing we were starting 24 karts in the main event. Everybody's had similar Bristol-looking customization! It got too big and I worried about liability so had to end it.

 

 

Those things look like a blast! Nice work building it! I wonder if it would work to drag my old go-kart down out of the rafters, put the engine back on and pvc the tires---ahh I'm too dang old----well-----

I love the fact that the go cart has me as the driver painted on it already.     CO Driver Chris C

 

LOL! Is "C" your last initial too? Chris C. is our son! He did a lot of driving for Dad in the later kart years.
