The Revamping of a Pedal Go-Kart

Yes, well... The title says it all... I took apart a pedal go-kart, cleaned, greased, and painted it in the hopes that it would work better. It looks better and the pedals work smoother, but the tires have holes in them so even though everything else works now, the tires are flat, which means that it is very hard to pedal. Looks like I have to buy new tires, huh? The good thing is that it only took me 2 hours to do this whole thing, so not much time was wasted. But enough talk, see for yourself.

My twin brother and cousin didn't cover anything when they spray painted the go-kart. I know, aren't they smart? *rolls eyes*
