$50 Go Kart Build 2.0!!

246K views31

    Ike bought a $50 go kart! Can we make it run and ride for minimal investment? In today's episode, we do a follow up build to our original $50 go kart build video from years ago. Can you still buy a decent go kart for $50? This one wheel drive vintage Streaker go kart has a late model Jiang Dong 196cc overhead valve engine that isn't running. With a little bit of cleaning and under $50 worth of parts, we make this rusty old go kart run and ride!

    6. Danny Harris

      Hey guys I have won those old Murray go karts. And has a 6.5 hp Tecumseh. Are there performance parts for the Tecumseh the engine? Or parts from another type of engine that will fit on it?

    7. Daveyo747

      If I were you fix up that Go Kart and put safety in it, make it look nice and donate it on a raffle or hold a neighborhood party and those that bought tickets use a stub with the number on it and have the winner get a trophy and donate the Kart & proceeds etc for some kid who has no real family and is homeless etc. At least brighten up his life a little Ok. Just a suggestion.

      I just bought a Streaker Pace Setter that looks more like a Manco. It has duel disc brakes and a live axle with big at looking tires on back. It had that same weird torque converter a 5hp. Briggs. Iโ€™m fixing up right now, my first ever go kart at age 65. Btw streaker was made by Ken-Bar Corp. which I believe Manco may have bought out, but not sure.....love yaโ€™llโ€™s show.

    9. Hayden my fav 2021 E63s

      I got a 206 cc racing go kart I need to get a new clutch, big tooth 69 gear, front suspension, steering system. Wanna know why??? Because when I was going into the apex corner at imi speedway. At high speed my wheel flew off I'm kart fell to the floor my clutch broke somehow and I spun into the dirt. Now I have to check the entire kart and inspect and fix everything. Ugh

    10. dirtbikeboy66

    23. ShiinaBeats

      Try to find something under 100โ‚ฌ in germany....




      So having a Big diameter in the back makes your card faster acceleration but lower top speed?


      This video is nice























    38. Names Bones

      They did come with a tecumseh 6 hp I had one ended up putting a predator 212 on it and putting the original on a Japanese mini chopper

    39. Remady

      That go kart was waiting years for someone to yank on its cord

    40. Jack Seliskar

    43. Mike Hohrein

      They have bad energy towards each other at times anyone else pick that up

    44. stampy Dragon

      They were a kit cart not commonly sold I. The us tho some kits were imported they were a kit where you supply your own engine

    45. Nathaniel Gustin

      Because if a kid crashes it, it wonโ€™t destroy the steering.


      Runs on mothonol

    49. Anthony Brown

      Got a question? How much are race car body amusement park gocarts worth? I recently bought a webber racer single seat plastic full body. I can not find one anywhere to get a idea of value. It is built big and like a tank. In great condition just needs a little sanding and paint. Runs and drives.

    50. john beach

      Hey yall, I have a Streaker frame very very similar and haven't been able to find any helpful info about it on Google. My frame is a bit different but I got a few questions and was wondering if y'all might be able to help answer some of them?

    66. Content

    69. chisel_Head

      I had the same go-kart in 1978 and mine had a 5hp Briggs & Stratton with a centrifugal clutch and by far the clutch was the worst. It was new in 1978 and I think it was bought at Western Auto.

    71. Steven Valengavich

    72. Xavier Xi

      How to Build a Go Kart for $50? 1. Get a $100 go kart from your friend for $50. 2. Get some sponsors to give you a couple hundred bucks of freebies,. 3. Buy a few things from the hardware store or wherever and just don't include the cost in the tally.

    73. Carlos Canela

      Y does ike look like captain price๐Ÿ˜…ifukyk

    74. Iantheodd1

      My friend has the same go kart and it is terrible

      Drinking game!!! Take a SHOT every time u hear them say this!! "It's will be fine" "Testing purposes only" "Thank you go power sports" "Really like your guys channel!!

    77. Brody Jo

      Make it into a barstool kart lol

    78. William Stamper

      I think the streaker carts were available at montgomery wards in the 1960's.

    79. Z 732

      Hey .. tech tip. Easier to make a lock nut .. if its small enough, hit the threads with a flat blade screwdriver. If its big, use a chisel. Just ding one thread. Thats all it takes. If you ding two, its still okay. One relatively gentle whack and its a done deal. That way this is not flying randomly and dangerously all over the room. Js

    80. G's up, hoes down!

      Typical that dumb USfilmrs say they get something for less to nothing, common be real! What are you trying to prove?

    81. chuk101

      Just saw a 1968 stayr puch haflinger in a vid, is that something you can replicate on a gokart frame?

    82. Kyle Lucas

      Going between that stump and log on that U-turn

    84. jaa joo

      Last year when i bougth my first car fiat 127 the owner said it runs poorly well it ran on 3cyls and i bougth it replaced the plug wires and cleaned the carb it had allmost a cm of weird sludge that was kind of like cement and replaced the accelerator pump film and it has been running ever since

    85. DoItMyself

      A good friend always makes sure you are okay, and then proceeds to laugh uncontrollably. Loved it!

    86. RedneckSwede

    90. Info Warlock

      ............ CREEEP................

    91. John Hiebert

      in 1980 I got the same go cart from susuki dealership for the kids. I paid 450 dollers.

    92. Joaquin Juarez

      WOW. I'm gonna be honest with you guys. I'm really jealous that you can find go karts that cheap. Down here in Houston Texas, you can't even find a frame for less than a couple of hundred.

    93. Owen Kotal

      looks like there's enough room in back for another engine, you should make a 2 engine 2 wheel drive kart


      You should get an ultrasonic cleaner from harbor freight to clean carbs.

    95. Fivespeed 302

      Dang, you already had the carb off, you should have cleaned it completely and saved yourself some time.
