Re: 1099K IRS reporting for sales over $600 a year-eBay is fighting back-sign petition.

I fear that contacting the IRS to voice concerns about these abusive and ridiculous taxes will only put a target on your back that the IRS will exploit. I seriously doubt the IRS will give a rat's a$$ about any petition. Man, do I pray I'm wrong.

Re: GK800 Paint codes

I believe 1960 800's were candy apple red only. I know later GK's could also be blue or green.

Re: Calling all Clintons!

This 5 port Clinton reminds me of a similar treatment that was done to early WB 580's that inspired the development of the 580/700 v-5 blocks.

Re: You have to be out of your F...ing mind

Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to outrageous prices. Especially when I see what things are selling for on Bring a Trailer. Then again, maybe I shouldn't gripe..........I just might be sitting on a gold mine of vintage karts and parts!

Re: Info on Simplex Fun Kart

You can try asking Tom Thorin. He is known for his vast knowledge of Simplex karts.

Re: Swappiing and shopping at TBO

I like the E65...........but they look and sound a lot better than they perform. I use them for show, not go! And those megs are so LOUD that I'm convinced the Clinton design engineers were told to make them as ear-splittingly loud as they could. BTW, I'm as well as any 72 year old! LOL

Re: Swappiing and shopping at TBO

Hey Ted. I thought about polishing up my E65 megaphones............and now that I've seen one, I guess it's time to get busy!

Re: Mystery Kart

Kart is certainly a Simplex. Perhaps a MK 15 or MK 16 (single or dual with the floating aluminum pan and forward pedals) . Steering wheel is not original. Cool kart.
