That will be a great surprise for them.  They will love it.  Looks like a good start for a go-kart project.  Did you get it for cheap?

Looks less complete than the other one but this one should have more ground clearance since the rear axle bearings are mounted on the bottom side of the frame.

this thing has been hack and bubble gummed together, it looks like it was originally a track kart almost like the other one I had, the axle use to be above the frame and they cut it and rewelded it
underneath


Needs
-sprocket and chain
-mount the rear wheels some how
-run a better brake and throttle cable( bring the paddles closer so my kids can ride it
- kill switch by the steering wheel
- redo the steering
- some braces
- a ton of flapper disks and some paint

Go kart looks pretty good. I bet it will be fun to drive once finished. Have you thought about upgrading the centrifugal clutch to a Comet torque converter?

CVTs are dirt cheap on ebay

That's the strangest motor mount I've ever seen.  Is it factory?

What's that thing welded in front of the front bumper for?  Scrapping ice off of the driveway? lol!
