These are opening questions that hopefully will lead you to a more mature design. Perhaps you have all this sorted already; if so, please provide answers. Don't be offended; consider this a preliminary design review.
yes I have considered all you have thought about. the pivot is a nut bolt combination device that I designed I don't want to share drawings right now as I have the plans on sale in swapshop so forgive if I keep a few bits secret. as for dropouts at rear of bike they are thicker admittingly in the views but only because of limitations of my cad skills. they are just plate steel shaped and drilled/grooved to enable removal of wheel. the bend piping I will personally be doing with a pipe roller similar to in picture below, although if someone thought of different way go right ahead but I personally will not guarantee results to be the same. any fork will fit just adjust dimensions to suit what you got, just drew that size, you can change rake if you want but I like the way it is. if you want plans look in swapshop for my thread.
