  My nice n1ke Zeus reproduction
Posted by: ted johnson - 10-16-2021, 09:32 AM - Forum: For Sale/Wanted - No Replies

If anybody is interested in a most unusual vintage REAR engine kart, my Pro/Engineer CAD designed '63 n1ke Zeus "sort of" repop is for sale. It is all 4130 tubing with the steering wheel raised and pushed forward from stock n1ke position for the larger driver. Weld jigged by Ron Cubel and me, welded by the great Ben Herr. Stock port Chrysler/Libberton 610 boost port engine with a V-12 manifold and dual alky HL250 carbs by Hank Rotroff. A GEM open header on the engine. 4" Series I magnesium wheels all four corners. One of the late Paul Bennett's Dyna Drive gearboxes with the oil clutch housing which I designed along with Ron Cubel. Ron did the machining. A very good Rev Grip clutch with better springs inside. This is a sweet driving kart. It's been at Fremont several times, but not with the current engine. g0ld powder coat is still nice, but with a few scratches. The 610 has less than three total hours of run time since new. It was on Charli Craibe's '61 Bug Scorpion. The kart handles well, and the Libberton runs about like a good stock '91. I can't ship, so you'd have to come to Arizona and pick it up. $2800 is a firm price and worth it. No negotiation. If anyone is SERIOUS, I will get better pix. Ted Johnson

Posted by: Blaine Robert Young - 10-11-2021, 08:33 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

CALIFORNIA HAS ANNOUNCED THAT IT IS BANNING GAS POWERED MOWERS, BLOWERS, ETC.  DOES THIS EXTEND TO ATV'S, GAS POWERED KARTS, OR ALCOHOL POWERED KARTS?  IT WOULD BE FUNNY IF IT WASN'T SO STUPID.  WILL IT REQUIRE FLEEING TO NEVADA, ETC. TO GET A TRACK TIME FIX?

THOSE OF US THAT DON'T PLAY FACEBOOK USED TO BE ABLE TO LOOK AT THE POSTS BY USING THIS FORUM.  THE "PRIVATE" STATUS (WHATEVER THAT MEANS) SEEMS TO HAVE WIPED OUT THAT OPTION.  THE CHALLENGE IS FOR SOMEONE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO LOOK AT THE FACEBOOK POSTS ON THIS FORUM WITHOUT OPENING IT BACK UP TO THE NUT JOBS THAT WOULDN'T KNOW A KART IF IT CUT THEM OFF AT THE ANKLES.
