Carburetor separated to enable me to install the rear suspension
Could not fit it in while carburetor was in position
This last photo show that the suspension is in position
Take note - my exhaust in not in the correct position
The exhaust must be inside the frame !!

Now when I wanted to complete my assembly there was a lot of mistakes
Start with the fuel tank
replace the wrong side of the radiator
Next it will be my wheels

Time to fix all my problems
Start with the rear side
With the rims - I cut out the holes on the rim insert the spokes and press down the edges onto the rim and glued it

Nearly done - once you have the edging sorted out it will look very good.

And great practice for the next one!
