suspension concept

i have an idea for an alternative to front forks, yes i'm aware that forks work well and this isnt going to be better but its part of my custom bike project (i dont ride well enough to push a bikes limits so i wouldn't be affected by a limited bike) so any insight or criticism would be helpful 


it would be sort of based on a rear swingarm and frame section but linked to the yolk and handlebars instead of the rest of the frame. wheel is green, parts free to rotate are green and the shock is red. :biggrin:

ohh

didnt know what leading line forks were. and the drawing is the best i could do in 15 seconds in paint :p


the idea is for it to be more like a swingarm at the front of the bike (like the Bimota Tesi 2D  "forks" but one sided and at a much larger angle) (>35degrees) 

the idea for thw whole motorcycle is to get a big v-twin and stick it in a decent frame and customise the rest.

something like the pic but an entirely different character.
