The kart chassis in the "components" section two below the Blow Hustler and to the right of the Daytona are Taifun karts. It looks like a calendar on the wall top right. The "Taifun" name and date 1974 can be made out.
This marque revolutionised kart chassis design in the early 1970's and were developed by the German Shofer (hope the spelling is correct) for Karl-Heinz Peters, runner-up to Francois Goldstein in the 1971 World Champs. The original Taifun karts have a dual steering column arrangement giving a more vertical steering wheel. Goldstein used the Taifun with conventional steering as per these examples to win the 1972 championships in Kalmar Sweden. The original Hutless karts were modelled on the Taifun design.
