I have seen bikes with front freewheels, but I thought they had a rear freewheel too... Maybe I'm mistaken! I think the idea was that you could shift without turning the pedals, as long as the bike was moving (because the chain would keep moving, even though the crank arms would stop). I think it was a solution in search of a problem, so it was eventually given up on.
Could be a neat way to build up a fixie though.
