Think about it. What loads does the front hubshell between the bearings actually have to bear? I'm thinking not a lot. The axle should actually be doing all the work, the hubshell just needs to keep the dirt out and the flanges indexed to each other, and there are already the spokes and rim to help.

I wonder if one could completely saw out the center of the hubshell and have it still work fine?

A person told me that this method was popular in the 1960s, .....perhaps, but so was LSD. It might be that the same person was used to both. Here is the link to the photos
