Hoffman cart restoration
New here so a brief description. I've been around golf carts my whole life. My dad built and serviced them in my hometown. He worked for Ralph Hoffman who bought out the Walker/Jato cart company in the 60's. They built Hoffman golf carts until the mid 70's. My dad has a 70's model gas three wheeler I'm helping him restore. It has a steering wheel instead of a tiller bar. We are looking for a sun canopy frame. They were the same as used on the walker carts. The sad part about this situation we're in, up until about 10 years ago he had the jigs to build cart frames as well as the canopy frames. He got tired of them taking up room in the backyard so he sold them for scrap. Any help, leads is greatly appreciated.

Re: Hoffman cart restoration
I would consider making a canopy frame using mine as a model. I am also interested in any more definitive history on Hoffman golf carts. Can you find out exactly what year Ralph Hoffman bought out Jato. My research indicates that it was around 1968. Please contact me through my business about making a canopy top.
