well, kinda varies....
location seems to have a lot to do with it....

I bought and sold one for $200 without ever touching it...

a complete Brat gokart can sell for $230 - $900...

I've seen 'em go high on the coasts.

I've seen the shells go for $100-$150 too.

I got my complete one (less seat) for $230 in Racine WI.

I've got a brochure for them too. They were available in a multitude of colors if ordered, but I've only seen Red, Blue, and Yellow....
Red being the most common....

Perhaps a bit off topic, but do you happen to know what kind of engine there is on that frame? It looks a lot like a "mystery" engine we have here at the bike club, 200-300cc'ish 4 stroke, pull starter? Any info is appreciated.

I am somewhat interested... I know richie has a body... has a repaired crack, but may be enough to create a mold.

I would likely want to put it on a custom frame or something...

Should fit nicely in the Baja :D

Just gotta convince the wife that its a good investment :banghead:

note the lic. plate number on mine

don't know what the FW means

I have a brand new Subaru (Robins) 8 HP
for mine but do not want to ruin the
originality

Did anyone watch the video I linked to?
It was quite the hit at Carlisle that year.
I let lots of kids
take it for a spin.
