Where I went wrong?

I tried to write constant for my program. But it is not working. Please let me know where I went wrong?

class GoKart {
  private String color;
  private static final MAX_BARS = 8 ;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    this.color = color;

  public String getColor() {
    return color;
