Anybody purchase a go kart for their kids? My boys are going to be 8 next week and I was thinking about getting them one. The price would be less than $1,000 and ideally I could find something used.

If anybody has any recommendation, I would appreciate it. Also, any idea on where they would be able to actually drive it on Long Island? My biggest concern is where they could actually use it.

thanks

Correct there is no place to ride legally. I build, buy and sell mini bikes and go karts and everytime i sell one i am asked where they can be ridden..

I have a kart for sale on craigslist now. Not mine just selling for someone.

Thanks guys. My property is not that big, so unfortunately this probably wont work. Its too bad because my kids would love it.

Some of the places out east want a $1,000 membership fee per person to ride. I am sure their liability insurance is ridiculous but that is crazy. It would be cheaper for me to try and buy some undeveloped land that use that.
