Jerome, if you don't weld or have a welder, then the plans are useless. I make go karts for my kids. First, I go to the scrap yard or landfill or junkyard. I make friends with someone there and offer them a small amount of cash to save me a cart frame if they see one come in. Then go to NorthernTools.comm and order the stuff your frame does'nt have. I did read something on the web about a guy that used to make go kart frames with threaded pipe. No welding here, but seems like you'd have to buy lots of threaded pipe and elbow joints. Have you thought of running and ad in your local paper for a free or cheap kart or frame?
