The first Hardley (new word for me that i first heard here lol) rubber mount engine, generally considered the best was a factory 3 point mount deal starting ~ 84 fxr - flh. The Fxr frame was also highly praised but labor intensive to manufacture.I don’t think Hobot came up with the Tri-link set up, there are definitely other guys on here running similar. I suspect the idea may have come from the Harley world where similar set ups were created for the rubber mounted ‘Dyna’ range.
for new folks who never hearda..you'uns remember that guy Hobbot ? the stream o consciousness poster? he had a thing i think for a dame named Ms Peel ran across this on YouTube.. where he at?
