I don't think that's the bike you should be worrying about:

Craig Calfee makes some of the most gorgeous bikes on the planet (I'd
kill for a Luna Pista or Tandem).

I like this one too.

A pista version wouldn't get dirty enough to need cleaning.

You are right, its not legal on the streets in Portland, no hand
brakes!

Legal in most other locales except a few UCI sanctioned events or USCF
roadie events (no hand brakes/fixie). The bike has other UCI issues
besides the aero fender.

OK, it looks as if its only 'concept' is maybe the ultimate hour
record, so whats with the helmet that was painted to match? You design
a limited use single speed and you pair it with a helmet that isn't
the same concept at all? Or are ultimate aero helmets looking
different these days?

Just wondering. It does look cool. Not sure I would want to change
tires on the sucker, though.
