This is a unknown kart i have picked up to restore, Nobody so far has been able to identify the builder, but i believe it was a project by a Porsche apprentice.

So i’m calling it a MYSTERY kart.  if anyone has any information on it i’d be grateful.

It has some unusual features, the alloy pedals are unusual, us are the way the steering column and seat supports are made.

now for a few pictures before the strip-down
