How To Build a Go Kart
Lawn Mower To Go Kart
How many of us have a lawn mower sitting in the back yard just waiting to be used. Used for something, right? Something other than a lawnmower.
You have this intuition that you could make this fantastic go kart with the components of the lawnmower. You think it can be done, but when you start looking at things, you start to just give up.
-Things like the engine and how to hook it up to actually drive a go kart?
-Things like the rear wheels. You know they are just right for a go kart, but how in the world can you use them just the way they
-Things like the steering system. You’d love to use it, but how?
- Then it also comes down to a frame. You can clearly see that the framework from the lawn mower is just too unstable, and just isn’t practical. There has got to be a way to make a decent frame without busting the budget.
So what do you do?
Because the lawnmower-gokart is just too much of a challenge and time is precious, you just let it sit, and think: someday I will use it.
But alas that someday never comes.
Spring cleaning comes knocking, and that precious lawnmower goes straight to the dump.
Problem is that someone like me grabs that lawnmower practically out of your hands and takes it home with him. And what does he say “Man you are throwing this out?! I am gonna make a go kart out of this gem!” And away he goes.
A couple of weeks later, there he is driving that gokart around, with your lawnmower parts!
Whats wrong with this scenario here?
Whats wrong is he has something, some skills that you don’t have. But wait a minute, that is Larry down the street and he doesn’t know anymore about engines, lawnmowers, much less welding than you do!
What happened here?!
Larry bought the Go Kart Guru Mega Bundle that's what happened here!
Inside the Mega Bundle Larry found out how to make all sorts of Go Karts. First he tried his hand at the Wood Go Kart. He put it together with his son over the weekend!
They started out riding it down hills. During the week, Larry and his sons quickly converted the Wood Go Kart to use a gas engine. The next weekend they slapped together the engine, drive train and throttle mechanism and were tooling around their yard in no time!
Because the wood go kart was such a blast and so easy to make, Larry tried his hand at making a metal framed
gokart. Because the Go Kart Bundle has a full set of plans in it, Larry started making his frame the next weekend.
But that wasn’t it, Larry was getting a little upset because he did not have an engine to use, much less tires, a steering wheel and seat, so he was looking on ebay and craigs list to find at least an engine.
The morning that you were dropping off the lawnmower, Larry had just placed a couple of bids on different lawnmowers and engines. And boy was he glad to see that Lawn Mower you were throwing away!
He knew that lawnmower would save him hundreds of dollars. In fact he was so pleased he would have payed you 20 bucks for that old riding lawnmower.
Like you found out later, he and his sons promptly took that riding lawnmower monster apart and busily started reading the Go Kart Guru’s books on Vertical Engine Drives and How to use parts from a lawnmower.
They also used the books that talked about frame design, because they wanted to make sure that the two seater they were developing wouldn’t fall apart.
And to put the final touches on the go kart they used the book on seats to make a really durable and comfy go kart seat.
When you saw Larry he was just testing the go kart out and boy was it a looker. Even without paint it looked fantastic.
Larry put to good use the Go Kart Guru Mega bundle and fabricated his own Go Kart all made from a Lawn Mower.
Wouldn’t you like to know how he did that?

today and find out what all the fuss is about. Why Larry was so well equipt and not frustrated, but empowered.
And the real plus about the whole story is that Larry and his kids were on the rocks. The kids could hardly stand Larry, until he and them started working together on the go kart projects.
Now Larry is working on a third go kart, and do you think he has spent very much money? Hardly! Larry hasn’t even spent hardly anything, and to boot, Larry lost his job, so making a go kart really seems foolish doesn’t it?
Not to Larry, having that time off, and having no money really made this Go Kart Project well worth the time. Using all those Lawnmower parts really made the challenge fun and exciting. So I am guessing the next time you see Larry he will be thanking you.
You may want to see if he’ll let you ride his
gokart, that is if his kids will let you get on it!
