MTB with 26" front wheel.. and road rear wheel?

Blessed with more money than sense, I bought and restored a beautiful bike. Then I went frankenstein on it, such that I am not looking to put a road wheel on the rear, with an MTB up front. Because I want to. No other reason than it looks nicer than the internal geared rear set-up it has. The wheel would be a single speed, trispoke wheel.

Clearance is not an issue as my bike, a monocoque EPX Roadster is full suspension (was, until I replaced the front fork with a... nevermind)

Please refer to the pics for more info.

What I am looking for, is information. Is this such an incredibly stupid idea that I am even contemplating it...etc.

I've got it stuck in my head, and unfortunately I need to see things through more often than not.

So, who feels chatty?
