    If you wanted it to be accepted it would have to look normal, or work so much better.

    I like the look of that girder front end. It could almost be mistaken for forks, especially if they were metal.

    Yes and carbon tube is relatively cheap as well, just make sure all the alloy is anodised where it touches carbon.

    I mentioned this one at the start.
    http://motovue.net/tag/honda/page/2/
    Aussie Uni Student did this in the 90's

    The solid looking front “fork” is also made from chrome-moly steel, and is encased in carbon-fibre for added torsional stiffness. This is attached to the two alloy wishbones by a 14mm upper and 16mm lower ball joint that can be adjusted by thread and lock nut to vary the forks rake from a fairly standard 25 degrees to a very steep 18 degrees. The front suspension also makes use of car type polyurethane bushes, while the double wishbones move on plain bearings in order to keep costs down.

    The clip-on style handlebars and top yoke pivot in what looks like a conventional steering head (the lower part of which doubles as the top mounting point for the front shock absorber) and uses two rods with eyeball joints at both ends to attach the steering yoke to the fork. The bottom of the front shock absorber is angled out onto a mount at the front of the lower wishbone.

    The shock absorber itself is an American car racing A.V.O. unit, with infinitely adjustable rebound and compression damping. Duncan found the A.V.O. shock absorbers specification to be very good, and apart from being a lot cheaper than the “name” brand motorcycle type, it can also be purchased as a single unit with the added bonus of different rate springs being available for a mere $30.

    That'd be a great fun thesis.

    Read an article a few months ago about a French Moto2 bike that did a few rounds. Fairly sure it was hub steered and it had some promising results but no teams wanted to take the risk so it faded away. Cant remember the name and sadly my googling isn't returning anything. Will try and dig out the magazine tonight.
