Hi Andhika,

For this racing kart:

it cost about 250 Euros.
The Motorbike engine cost 100.
I got an old crashed racing kart for 100. It had the wheels and axles.
The parts and materials for the kart cost 50 Euros.

The biggest cost was the engine and wheels.
Once you have these, it will only cost 50 Euros for the material and nuts 
& bolts.

Best of luck,
