Lots of guesses, I will definitely post the minute I find out.

If this is a 36v cart, and it does need batteries......would I be better off converting to 48v right off the bat?

IMO, yes, but you're going to have to drop the cash not only for the batteries but also for a new controller, HD F&R switch, solenoid, and cables. Scottyb with Carts Unlimited (site sponsor) sells kits with all that stuff packaged together. Really it's just a question of budget (but isn't everything with carts? )

no IMHO.. best to play around with it first and learn things about the cart

I'm looking at this more from a cost perspective. I'm willing to spend a little more off the bat so I don't have to upgrade in a couple years. I certainly don't mind getting my hands dirty learning how to build one from the ground up; these machines are actually fairly straightforward compared to the stuff I usually wrench on!

I'm checking out Scotty's stuff right now. I agree, I think that would be the way to go.

I guess somebody has to say it. You'll be buying $500 worth of junk. If you want to go used buy something a little more expensive. Maybe in the $2000 range. Something you can test ride. I'd be afraid to set in that seat worrying about what going to bite me.

I'll debate that. Say I buy a cart for 2 grand, runs good, life is great. I follow through with my plans, and buy new wheels, tires, custom seat covers, new dash, paint the body and roof, etc. Basically everything I'll have to do to this old cart, minus maybe a new set of batteries that this one will require. Instead of starting with $500 and working towards 2-3 grand, I started at 2 grand and wound up at $4K plus......

One man's junk is another man's project. All opinions are appreciated though!

It's quite a bit tougher up here. A "custom" golf cart runs closer to 5-6k, and that usually just gets you a set of wheels. Plus buying one that's done is no fun......half the amusement is in building the thing yourself!

Im with jjance on this one. Find yourself a nice cart with no or newer batteries and just drive it. Most people dont need the performance upgrades that some of us are doing. Have you asked yourself "Whats my main use going to be?" and "How much am I willing to spend?"
It gets expensive quick!

As long as you have a good idea going in it's not a bad idea. Especially if you enjoy the wrenching. Look at the date post on the batteries it is possible they could still hold a charge and have just been sitting. The only concern I have for you is that the owner knows nothing about it. Of course I will be selling a 94 36volt resistor cart with a six inch lift and 22" tires in a week or two if you wanna drive down to beautiful PA!
