There not that big, about 5' long and 35" wide at the back fenders. More of a kids kart. I don't think it would fit on a golf kart, but who knows!

there $325 in solid colors and $450 in metalflake.

I love it!! yea post a pic next to an adult person for size reference.

I would love to put a shifter cart under that to match my own manx for my son.

Also would and adult be able to sit inside of it or is it too small??

Isn't there a Gokart/mower place down on South Sante Fe (close to Peppertree)?

Any chance to get a windshield frame and dash?

This would be the $hit at the next VW meet :sha:

So basically something like this as a doner.

A small adult could fit, but I stress small. Yes, I will be working on windsheids as well.

Do you think I should do real glass, acrylic or polycarbonate?

Either. It depends on if I want to run an aluminum frame or not.
