The Flatworks, LLC. designs and produces wooden kits that are as fun to build as they are to use. Based in Newport, Rhode Island our first kit, the PlyFly GoKart, launched on Kickstarter, ending March 31st.

PlyFly Go-Kart: 2.5 HP Edition

          As someone who has raced powered things all his life, Dave has ushered the design of our first kits from concept to reality. Knowing no bounds, Dave cut, shaped, hammered and cajoled plywood to places it has never been before – and may never go again!
