Alternatives to Teles

Which alternative front systems have been designed and tried at least on prototypes except telescopic forks?

This will surely last until I come back from Christmas holidays

Hello folks and a Happy New Year to everybody!
I'm back from holidays and just saw the replies to this thread.
It seems that almost all designs have been mentioned, but there are still more.
For example the Neracar, the Difazio hub steering designs, the Foale/Parker, the Hossack, the Britten motorcycle and others.
I have found an interesting site by Tony Foale with lots of info on alternative front ends, everything is nicely explained also!
The article is written by Tony Foale himself one of the pioneers of alternative
Here it is if you re interested:
http://www.ctv.es/USERS/softtech/mot...teer/STEER.htm

The main page is:
http://www.ctv.es/USERS/softtech/motos/Articles/

It contains info on various motorcycle design subjects.

Although these articles discuss ther major innovations and designs there are still more!
Do any of you remember Franco Sbarro and his hubless bikes?

Here is anothere good site:
