Is the rear wheel on the wrong way round? Brake rotor on wrong side?

Where does the mech / caliper go?

Tyre looks awfully tight to the top of the rear triangle

Yeah wheel is wrong way round. Mock up i guess.

The hanger is there i think, looks to be about 2/3rds down the rotor!!

As I'm sure you can see, the wheel is in the far forward position in the sliding dropouts. Once the bike is done I will optimize the position or perhaps leave it where it is.

I cant quite remember but didnt the stabs or stinkys have the DOPE system?

May be worth looking into if so.
