Somebody was looking for one of these some time back. Most of them had fixed mounts (Montgomery Ward version). This one is set up for swing mounts but appears to be for LH engines, so this must be the Homelite version. Seems like a deal.

Left front axle looks tweaked. But still worth a buck.

They were a little different than "regular" Foxes. Maybe they didn't want people to know that they made them. They had a different front axle, bumper and used Azusa pedals. But used the telltale "satellite" seat and rear bearing hangers. Also the Lemans wheels.

Dan is correct on it being a Fox kart. They built for many different customers in the early days. They included McCulloch, Homelite, Sears and others.

Steve Carroll, The reason the spindles don't look like Fox spindles is because they are Rupp spindles, so are the king pin / bolts, front axle, and tie-rods.
