There are two ways to build a go-kart: using a kit or sourcing materials to build from scratch. Kits save time and effort, but customization is still possible. Building from scratch requires research and scavenging for parts, but networking with others can provide helpful suggestions.

If you’ve decided to build a go-kart, there are essentially two courses of action you can take. One approach is to buy go-kart kits that will include everything you need to build a go-kart. Your other option is to assemble materials from a variety of different sources and create your own plans and designs for the gokart. Here are a few reasons why both options might be more to your liking.

One of the benefits of a kit is that you save a lot of time and effort figuring out all the small components needed to build a go-kart. The kit will include pretty much everything you need except some basic tools that will be needed for the assembly process. While you may choose to use a prepackaged kit, you can still customize your go-kart by coming up with your own decals, choice of paint jobs, and other little touches. This will help you still feel like you are creating something from scratch and making it uniquely yours.

The second option is to build a go-kart the old-fashioned way. This means making a list of all the items you need and then locating each item. To start the process, search the internet for information on how to build a go-kart from scratch. There are several DIY sites that will give you a basic list of what you need, as well as some pointers on where to find the essential components.

If you choose to build a go-kart from scratch, there are a number of places to get the parts you need. For example, you’ll find that older walk-behind mower wheels will work just fine, along with small engines. Steering columns and plain axles can also be made from other parts that you can scavenge from any junkyard. As for the body, it is possible to build it from a combination of wood and metal components which you can also gather from different sources.

For suggestions, network with other people who build go-karts in your area or find an online bulletin board. You will find that many people enjoy using both kits and building a go-kart from scratch, and are often very happy to make suggestions to help someone new to the pastime. With a little effort, you’ll soon have your list of essential items and you’ll be ready to build your very own custom go-kart.
