:) I would like to know if its a vintage racing kart or a fun kart. A Buddy told me that back in the day, SAE racing karts had square tube frames, this kart has a round tube frame. SN: 00741861. Would like to find some prints/pictures of the brake setup, has someone a rubed g0ldberged the brake linkage ( manual drum brake). Thank you for your reply. Don B.

Hi,
Do you have any pictures? Send them to this site or my e-mail. I can probably tell you if it is an SAE or someone elses copy. There were a few round tube SAE's beside the spyders built.
Thanks Mike fleagle14@embarqmail.com (317)729-2418

Don, I have a kart known as a Sauder, much like the SAE but with a round tube frame. The front axles are adjustable in/out and radius rods are adjustable for the caster. I've been told the Sauder began life in the early '80's. They did come with disc brakes and the caliper mount was a 2 hole'd bracket forward of and separate from the left rear bearing hanger. They had a (typical today) 2 rail frame mount for the engine. The engine mounted rearward of the rear axle to provide the best bite to the right rear. If this is in fact what you have, they were really, really fast karts on loose dirt oval tracks where slideways is fastest. I am delivering mine to a buyer hopefully this weekend and I can get pics for you before I load it up for delivery. -Alan-

Bit of info on Sauder karts previously posted on this forum:

"I have talked to Paul Sauder the builder of these recently. He told me to look on the left rear axle bearing hanger. There may be a number stamped on it. He said he built a lot before he started numbering them. It will not give you a year but what number in the total he built after he started numbering them."

Hope this may help.

Don, look under the "Problems" heading and see Brian Santee's post on how to do it using Photobucket. If that doesn't work you could email them to someone that can post them for you.
