1968 Electric Gokart




1968 Electric GoKart: made from a heavy duty rolling frame, a Ford starter motor with centrifugal clutch, big taxi battery and a custom knife blade switch fabricated by flattening copper tubing.

Motorcycle battery was added later for powering some running lights. Would occasionally increase the fun factor by simply installing a 7/16" bolt and nut in the clutch, effectively giving you the direct drive capability to lay a 4 inch wide by 5 foot long patch of rubber from a standing start from those wide tread-less slicks. Too much fun!
