Look at What This Father is Doing With This GoKart

This is a five horsepower, four-stroke, chain-driven, single speed, mad, mad, speed machine. It'll do 25mph, in fact, with my shivering ass a 150lb fully grown man-boy gripping and tugging at the pseudo-pro pleather wheel on a slighly less than level grade. This thing only has one purpose, and therefor it is a… » 12/22/14 4:33pm Today 4:33pm
