I have 1959 Wideline and I'm considering rubber mounting, where is there any information, I know many have done it.

Of more concern even is that on the stock featherbed, the top of the steering head is braced as part of the engine steady, to the top of the cylinder head/rockerbox.
When you see it all bare under the tank there, on a stock bike, it is apparent that its an integral part of the frame's and steering head's strength.
Once the powertrain is isolastically mounted, what happens to that bracing to the top of the steering column ??
Unless some other bracing system is adopted in the featherlastic, that bracing has been lost.
That CANNOT be a good thing ?
Is there something that is not being revealed that is done to featherlastics in this dept ?
Or are we talking emperors new clothes....
