Bull Frog Go Kart Back in 2003 to 2004 J. Henry posted the following plans for free.

The plans were on JMHKarts.com which is no longer a valid site. Since they were freely posted before the site shut down, they will have no problems being freely posted now. I have no way to contact the originator of the plans. Enjoy the plans, share the plans, and give a special thanks to J. Henry, whoever and wherever he may be.
