To my knowledge ALL Mohawks were shipped with the front end pre-assembled.
I believe that their take on this was that the methodology/technology of
the time "really" didn't allow for the kit builder to get a GOOD
alignment without specialized tools and equipment. Therefore the
pre-assembled and aligned front end.
