This ThunderKart was in rough shape. The seat was falling apart, the greyhound 6.5 hp engine didn’t run, the maxtorque 20 series torque converter was sticking, and it just didn’t look so hot.
I kept the original seat cover that said “thunderkarts” and redid the rest with high density foam, marine vinyl, and red welting (piping).
I let my nephew test it out prior to selling this kart.

This is the video I made promoting the go kart prior to selling it.
