Picture of Homemade go kart
Me and a friend got tired of being bored and we don't have money to go out so we decided to build a go kart from scratch using materials we found around the shop. We custom built every single part on this go kart, from the steering to the brakes. This project took 3 days and at a total cost of $0.

Step 1: Materials

What you will need:
Square/Round tubing for frame and support
Steering wheel
Flat stock
Round rod
Assorted bolts

Why would you need measurements ? This is clearly a build it with what you have instructable. Nice job for a first attempt.:) a axel and a clutch and your good to go!

Very awesome project, me and my friend are doing this over the summer and we hope i works out. But can you post any videos or links to videos of you riding it, just for a little engorgement and taste of it.

Very awesome and thank you!
Very cool, man. Impressive build. Would you be willing to send me your plans? I also have a bunch of steel laying around and just picked up a welder... I'm itching to let 'er rip. thanks! Have a good one!

where did you get your base model ????????????

sco_oter (author)  ak35803 years ago
We googled racing kart frames and searched till we found one we liked.
How is it free then?
sco_oter (author)  garytoast3 years ago
Its free because i didn't buy anything for this project.
So you made the frame
sco_oter (author)  garytoast3 years ago
I made everything on the go kart except the engine, wheels, and steering wheel and those i salvaged from two mini likes, an edger, and my car.

Thanks for this. i now know what i need to do to my frame to make the steering work!!! Thanks again!
I just wanted to say that you have a seat and asorted bolts in the materials list but no wheels! This is a new turn of events in the mobility world. Grab the balloons! we're going up!

just kidding though. cool project

Do you think there is a weight limit for the rider? If so, what do you think it would be? It appears from the flux dust that you did not use a MIG welder, but either a flux core wire feed welder or a stick welder. Which did you use?

This is a nice project that should provide much enjoyment for a long time. Thank you for sharing it.
sco_oter (author)  Phil B3 years ago
I believe the weight limit is around 200lbs. I used a cheap walmart stick welder. It would support more weight if I had a better welder. Thanks for your reply.
