   New Posts elite karts (sidewinders)  This sub forum is for the elite brand of vintage karts discussion of history and i.d. points pictures ect to be found here "Elite" karts were built by "Karts Incorporated". Based in Whitman, Massachusetts. Owned by Van Gilder, the current COO of WKA. They were produced from 1979 until 2003 in Massachusetts. Van moved to Tifton, GA in 2003 and resumed limited production. I was the welder and fabricator the karts from 1979 until he moved. (There were a few others who at times did the fabrication portion). We produced over 850 of them. Sprints and enduros. The history before Elite started with Laguna karts. They were built at Karting Sales in Abington MA, by Stu Styverson (circa 1973 to 1977). Stu sold Karting Sales to Van, but sold Laguna to Richie Ludwig of Kustom Kart Shop in NJ. Stu went to Margay and then founded Trick karts. In the meantime, a Connecticut airplane parts manufacturer jigged up a Laguna sprint and began production of a kart called Shark. Van purchased Shark in 1979 and changed the name to Elite. So in a way the karts have an interesting connection ending up back at Karting sales in 1979. Griffith Specialties, Barnes karts and parts, and GT Enterprises were the biggest dealers during the first few years. Eventually, the dealer network disappeared and they were available only through Karts Inc. The kart pictured has a few non factory additions. The seat mounts, the steering shaft bottom mount and the steering shaft support has a couple extra mounting tabs. We sold a lot of them to locals in New England. If you ever come across one, there is a serial number under the master cylinder. From: marc ciannavei Date: Tue, Nov 4, 2014 at 9:57 AM  (1|4)
