Thanks Rob,
I am hoping to find a used one to match the other 3.
But will keep that in mind.

Are you still looking for a simplex wheel?
If so is a 5 or 6 inch?
If so I may have a wheel that I may be able to sell. I’ll check my stuff tomorrow

I am going to my shop later today and I’ll check and will take some pics of what I got
It looks as though you need the outer half or do you need the inner also

Hi Dave
Its outside only. Also any chance you have gas pedal?
Mines been bent.a couple of times. Have you ever seen the bars protecting the rear wheel?
Thanks,
Rob

Rob
I do have a couple of 6 inch wheels ( outside half) also insides too
As far as pedals I think I do—- won’t know till tomorrow if that’s ok
Do you need the rubber cover for the pedal also? I may have some of those also
The covers were actually the same thing I believe that they used on older GM cars and I can’t remember where I got them .They may be repops but I think they were nos As far as the wheel protectors you mean the ones on your kart that are in front of wheels? I have not but it doesn’t mean that they weren’t available.
Tom Thorin in California is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to simplex karts. He has decal sets for all the simplex I believe and upholstery also plus whatever else he use to make . I have never met him but has helped me a bunch of times when I first got my karts
I will check for pedals tomorrow and get the pictures of wheels and pedals off to you. It might take me a little time to figure that part out

Dave
