I've been cleaning out the garage, and found some gokart frames. I'm pretty sure the yellow one is a BUG frame, but I don't know the model (mid to late '70s). I have no idea what the black frame is (I know the front end is bent). The blue one was my very first kart. I don't know who made it, or what year it was made. Does anyone recognize any of these? Any additional info?

Hey Matt!

Welcome to the vintage kart world.

Those frames are absolutely of no value to you and you should just wrap them in cardboard and send them to me pronto. I will dispose of them for you into my collection.

Those are all keepers. By now, you probably have had so many offers to buy them, you might be able to retire for at least one weekend on a short vacation.

The yellow one is a mid 70s Bug Wasp dual engine sprint kart. Where are all the parts for it? You should build it up, put twin Komets or Parillas on it and have a blast!

The black one, is a Bug Black Widow, also mid 70s, also a dual engine kart. Do the same as above.

The blue one I think is an early 60s Bug Stinger, in nice shape. Always keep your first kart you ever had. You won't regret it.

Kind Regards,
