When I told people that Ted and I were making GoKarts they usually pictured some little thing that you rode around as a kid. Well, these were big boys toys and this is how we made them.
It really started when I bought a welder. It opened up a whole new world of building stuff. All you had to do was get some scrap, and glue it together and the shit was strong.
First it was just stuff for my Jeep including my trailer, but then I started making other stuff. I made a Kite Kart for my brother which was my first "wheeled" vehicle. Ted came over to check it out and ride it down the street.
"We should stick an engine on this thing", Ted said, and just like that the gears started turning in my head. "No, lets build something even better..."
