More Karts are surfacing almost weekly now.
Here's the latest amazing find.

Kart SK07. A 1963 Buckler Goldstar still in its original packaging as sent from the Buckler works to Mr Charles Laurent's home in Scotland on a train during 1963.
This was found with invoices packing slips and brochures. It comes complete with a Saetta Italian 100cc engine

The reason Mr Laurent never put his kart together? Well... He claims it was due to his VW Karman Ghia !!
The new owner, Andrew Lamb, is contemplating assembling the kart and giving Mr Laurent the chance of driving his Kart 40 years late. Look out for them at Shennington. Don't loose the packaging Andrew !!

Kart SK02 one of Brian Malin's Karts

Just so everyone knows what to look for in the shed...The Buckler Ultralite Mk2 had a centrally mounted engine and the Mk2A had the engine mounted to the left side. Simon and Keith's kart is a MK2A, as is Peter Silverthorne's.

The Buckler Gold Star was painted yellow as standard. Other colours could be ordered. Deeply Padded seat as standard !!- Luxury... When I were a lad...

Kart SK12. 1962 Ultralite Mk2. With negative camber rear axle. John Loxley
and his son Mark with the Concours Trophy Shennington June 2006. Well done lads!

Buckler Karts played a large part of the Buckler Engineering workload. The first Buckler Kart was built in 1958
