Hi Mike,

Typically a Cart/Kart would cost around 100 Euros for the materials and 
fastners etc. The engine and wheels cost typically cost another 100-150 
It is possible to cut a lot of costs however by using an old engine, and 
using wheels off an old hand trolley or something similar. I started 
making karts very cheap using wood and other common materials. As the 
design and revisions of my karts grew, I managed to buy an engine and 

This page: 
contains some good information on different methods to making a Cart from 
household materials, e.g. tubing etc.

Apart from that, the www.kartbuilding.net has lots of more info on cart 
If you have any specific questions, just email them on.

Best of Luck,
