Has an English look to it and a special one off. But the twin rear tires and extra fuel tanks makes it look like one of those karts from the street races in Mexico. Think it has a motorcycle engine. See the third petal? Better pictures would help a lot but I'm guessing this is from an old magazine?

I owned this Kart from 1972 to 1977. It had a Mac 101 engine. I bolted on the extra rear wheels. It was probably made in about 1962 or so. Very high quality welding and frame bends. Elaborate torsion bars on rear. It was made of a heavy tube frame which really weighed a lot. Bought in Kansas. Sold in Kansas. Third pedal was there when I bought it and it was never hooked up to anything. Previous owner had lots of quarter midgets and 1950's karts etc. He was very wealthy

Looks like rack & pinion steering also.
