Clean, straight and ready for a shifter engine...or just hit the track with the clone engine already mounted! CTS Karts were extremely high quality works of art in their day. At that time, a CTS was one of the best built, highest quality sprint racing karts money could buy...much nicer than the Italian competition of the same period. Hand built, TIG welded (just look at the photos..the welding done by Ray Cunninham is a work of art). Even today, no sprint racing kart in current production matches the craftsmanship put into one of these CTS machines. Here at Kartspeed, unlike most shops, we have sold almost every brand of sprint racing kart ever manufactured due to our huge stock of pre-owned inventory...so we have gotten a good look up close at the details of all the top manufacturers...and the CTS still stands out.. Fully adjustable seat stays (still not used on most current production karts), adjustable ackerman, adjustable front spindles, fully adjustable independent castor and camber (found only on the newest sprint racing machines of today), a 50mm rear axle way before anyone else was trying that diameter tube, the best braking system available at the time, Brembo, superb fit and finish...it just goes on and on.. Just take a minute to look at the chassis details in some of the photos.
This particular kart was a one owner kart since brand new (not something too common in the kart racing world!) and the condition of the chassis shows it had a loving owner. Yes it was raced and yes it did not spend all of its time in the garage, but the chassis is clean both top and bottom with minimal wear. This CTS would make a great Honda 80/85cc shifter kart for one of the few series running that engine package or a fun open track day kart with a 125 shifter engine mounted. Or, as we said, take it right to the track as is, and drive it as a non-shifter!
The kart comes with the complete original CTS paddle style shifter and linkage and front and rear torsion bars and clamps!
Before you buy a kart like this, customers must know a few things!!
*Why is this high quality shifter chassis offered for so little money? Right off the top, CTS is no longer in business. That makes karts like these, no matter how nice, not worth much to any racing enthusiast, as replacement parts will be hard to come by. But for those customers not racing, this is a great inexpensive way into the often high priced shifter market. Our brand new Tony and CRG and Birel Shifter packages come track ready starting at $12,500.00 So older karts like this offer quite a value.
We can build this kart into a complete track ready 125 shifter. Final cost will depend on which engine package you choose. Not sure? Contact us with your questions. The nice part of purchasing any of our available rolling chassis is that you get to build the kart completely to your specification. So the make, model and condition of the engine, brand and size of the radiator and all the smaller items are all custom fit to the new owner.
*As long as we have a pre-owned seat available in your size (we currently have seats for people 50 through 185lbs!), there is no charge for the seat or installation. We do carry brand new seats in sizes all the way up to XXL for drivers weighing up to 260+ lbs.
Here at Kartspeed we custom build all our karts to meet the customers requirements. Are you a shifter driver, TaG, Clone, or just want something to drive but have no idea where to start? Give us a call!
At Kartspeed we fit a seat to match each customers size, we create a custom manual with all the important items to use your kart and film a short video of the kart running here in our shop before we box it up for shipping.
*All Kartspeed Motorsports Karts come with a custom user manual for the specific kart that is purchased and an assortment of other helpful information for the new owner.
At Kartspeed Motorsports, all our pre-owned karts are inspected for damage including a safety check, crack inspection and all used chassis are put on our laser system to ensure a straight and true racing chassis. So while the kart may be older, it will perform reliably and safely.
