This is my custom built go kart, that I built from scratch.
There were no plans used, and was constructed as I went.

Many thanks to all who helped with this project.

Custom Go Kart Seat

Making my own go kart seat was the best thing for it. I have ridden in many go carts and the difference is amazing. its like the difference between horseback and a Lexus SUV. uber comfortable!!

It is very easy and inexpensive to make your own seat for your go cart.

Here's how I did mine

First, cut some wood in the shape that you need

then cut foam to match. (thickness and squishability is up to you)
use some spray adhesive to keep it in place

cut some vinyl and use a staple gun to tack it over your wood cutout

And for that final touch take another piece of vinyl and use decorative tacks to cover the staples

This turned out a lot better then I was expecting.

as always
Have Fun

I would like to just say this looks great work and cant wait to see the full end project.

I have been wanting to make one my self for years but never goton round to it, but plan on doing one with my son soon I hope.

Would there be any chance you could do a post on where you got things like the wheels, gears etc. from?
