Wait just a minute, you can't leave out the Yermamaha (I mean Star) Raider! They had a committee for the exhaust, another for the engine, another for the frame...etc. No committee was allowed to confer with or share any designs with any other committee. After they all designed their module, it was all assembled into the same bike!

It's also occurred to me that, with bikes going drive-by-wire, the need for mechanically fixed controls diminishes.
You are thinking! Imagine, "personality" modules that simply plug into a common connector/bus/capture device. Unplug the cafe bars, plug in the high bars. Unplug the bikini fairing and headlights and plug in the batwing. Same out back and with the controls. They could sell the modules as accessories. Get the basic bike, and then go back in for new stuff as you want them. Sort of like buying the S.O. a wig and a nurses outfit...
