Cool Sun Classic Golf Cart

Greetings all. I'm considering purchasing a 1986 Yamaha Sun Classic Golf Cart for my grand daughter (15) to drive around my property. What is your opinion on this cart? Are parts readily available and or manuals, etc? Thanks

Parts for the drive system should still be readily available and standard suspension parts, anything body related or cosmetic and you will be toast. Those are really cool carts though, way ahead of their time.... buy and keep it for yourself to cruise in, go find a common G2, G9, Precedent or whatever to mod for offroad stuff so that if it's gets torn up, no problems.....

Smallblock will enhance and correct my post here shortly ,just realized you are talking electric.......

I could have not said it better "Big Kahuna" Changeing the antiquated copper contact/resistor coils set up to a controller/pot box set up would be a great upgrade, Scottyb could probably set you up with some slight mods for the accelerator linkage. I have alway's wanted to get my hands on a G3 or G5 and chop the top for a roadster look. The possibilites are endless. Good luck on what ever you decide.

Thanks for the info. Being that my best friend builds commercial trash trucks from the ground up; I'm not woried about needing to modify down the road. Just wondered if basic running components were available or would I have to rebuild my own. Thanks

I'll probably be flamed for saying this but...
I won't recommend an old resistor coil cart for the kids to play with. They waste energy and tend to melt down when used hard or slow.
The cart is a classic, I've had 3 myself. 2 gas and 1 electric... the electric melted down. And the 2 stroke gassers were great fun and very reliable.

Exactly my feelings Scotty, resistor controled car's should be driven "pedal to the metal", not good when young ones are driveing. Oh I forgot...yes Scotty...you be be flamed
