Any Interest in Rugged Folding Kart Stand?- $130

Postby Robby Bernard » Sat Feb 22, 2014 7:09 pm

I recently joined the world of karting this year and have already caught the bug. A friend and I just bought ourselves a pair of Rotax Sr karts (I'm on a newer Sodi chassis, my friend is on a CRG chasis) and have been out at NTK for the past few weekends. Anyway, the hidden costs of karting are starting to catch up, so I decided to try to save a few bucks by building a kart stand. I ended up building myself an electric kart stand similar to the Streeter Super stand and built a folding stand for my friend.

I was looking to see if there was any interested out there for any new karters, or veterans for that matter, for me to build them a folding kart stand. It costs me about $75 in raw materials, and a solid half day of cutting/drilling/grinding/welding/painting but I'm trying to find an excuse to practice my fabrication and welding skills. I used 1.25 square tubing, 10" pneumatic rear tires, and 8" pneumatic swivels which I think is pretty similar to all the ruggedized stands sold from the pros for about $300 online. I'm not anywhere close to a professional fabricator and am fairly new to welding so will not promise that my welds will look all that pretty, but I do know they will do the job. The paint does a good job at disguising them anyway.

I will be at NTK tomorrow at about 11am so just swing by If you want to take a look (just look for the Sodi on a gold/black electric stand) If there is enough interest, I could either paint the stands with a higher durability urethane color and clear coat that I used recently to paint my motorcycle tank, or look at getting them powder coated, although I really have no idea what that would cost. Otherwise, I can just rattle-can with the stand with a color and clear coat just like I did on my current stands (see picture), or if preferred, leave the stand unpainted for you jazz up on your own. And, although this stand is very stout and I don't expect any issues, if anything on the frame happens to break or crack, I will repair it for free if you drop it off with me at NTK (you're on your own if the wheels or casters break, they are from Harbor Freight)
