Default Something I've been working on

Got the frame for $50 on craigslist and the engine is a 5spd 125cc 4-stroke. Just got done painting everything and have started the motor mount. Should be done in 2 weeks or so. I cant wait to ride this thing. (thats what she said)

The seat position looks like a classic enduro kart layout, but the rest of the chassis... does not.

I ended up getting a 4-stroke because the price was right. A 2-stroke would kick *** but I'm keeping this thing under a tight budget. Gonna have some fun with it then sell it, hopefully for profit but we'll see.
