  COMA motor
Posted by: ted johnson - 01-12-2021, 07:03 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Here's a fun one! Guy has an 820 or 610 on eBay. Lists it as a COMA motor, says it's very rare. Bought it for a mini bike It has too much compression. It has a muff with COMA cast in, I guess that's where he got the name. Anyhow, someone may get a 5/8" straight shaft 820 for a decent price, since he has no cue about it. eBay No. 164640896723 TJ

I know this is out of character for me but yesterday I picked up a Margay Cheetah from a friend. I originally bought it for the wheels and the nice Energetics brake.
I would consider restoring it if it would be a good handling kart if I go thru the tremendous work it needs.
I know nothing about this so I could use some help. I believe most of it is there , the mount has been turned upside down and welded solid but could probably be saved. Not sure if the front porch is original or has been added.
Anyway, any info would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Replaced all the main rails on this original Alley Kat. I was able to save and use the original rear axle hangers, steering hoop and shaft, pedals, the original front axle and spindles. I still have the sheet metal work to do. It will get an alum pan. My new Historic Class kart.

Fellow Vintage Karter’s                                                                                Jan. 1st, 2021

Joe Swantek and I have decided to cancel the 2021 Faye Pierson Vintage kart Reunion due to the unknowns with the Covid19 situation here in California. 
As it is right now, the Adams has told us that there is no limitation on how many attendees are permitted on their facility; however, you do need face masks and social distancing based on the County’s mandate. With that order in place, we would not be able to have the kart show, banquet, or awards programs. The health department could shut the facility down at any time especially with the current trend of Covid19 infections exploding in California. 
We feel it is in everyone's best interest to cancel the event that was planned for 2021. 
We do have a February 6th 2021 date at Riverside for vintage karts only practice 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We will not be sharing the track with other Karts or Bikes. The fee will be $75.00 if you enter in person or $50.00 if you enter online. The link to enter online is:
We do have a block of rooms at the Quality Inn in Riverside @82.00 per night single or double. The breakfast room is not available but the Quality Inn is offering a take-out breakfast (roll and orange juice). 951-683-6000
We regret that we need to cancel the 2021 VKA Adams Event as it has always been a spectacular display of both vintage equipment and on-track presentation, but we feel that it is in the best interest of all to do so.
Joe and I will be planning a 2022 Faye Pierson Vintage Kart Reunion the first weekend of February 2022 and we invite each and every one of you to join us then for an event that will be second to none. 
God Bless,
