Need some help getting started

well i've decided i want to build a go cart but there are some issues. i want to use a motorcycle engine. i was thinking about putting a hybuso (sp) engine in there. is it hard putting a motorcycle engine in there? becuase the engine is set up to move 1 wheel and i need to move 2 wheels is this hard to convert? where can i find a go cart with basically everything but the engine like just the shell?

Just look for someone selling their old go cart at a yard or garage sales.

Most go carts are chain driven so a motorcycle engine that drives the rear wheel through a chain shold be very easy to put together. Many go carts to not have a differential. Both back wheels are attached directly to the rear axel so driving the axel drives both back wheels.
