Hi Simon,

Thanks for the info and pictures. The kart will need a little work 
alright! At least you will have the wheels, and main chassis which will 
save you a good bit of time. Your going to need a new engine by the looks 
of it. It looks like a 50 or 90cc motorbike engine which is currently in 
it. It looks like the previous owner had to take bits off it and use them 
somewhere else.

It'll be interesting to see how you get on with it. If you get any "after" 
photos of the kart, send them on.

Best of luck,
