Your idea is a good one, but you still need to fabricate, in metal, the rest of the mount that would incorporate the use of these urethane skateboard truck bushings.
Good luck! and welcome to MB.c.

The softest ones might be great. You'll have to actually see your motor mounts to see if you can incorporate the truck bushings. Or fabricate your own mount specifically for use with the bushings. I'm in that waiting stage myself before I figure out my dampening strategy.

I like it. Good idea. I had a Ford model A, it had the engine bolted to the frame, I put the rubber engine kit on the thing and what a difference. There are not to many motorcycles out there that have rubber mounts, but that is how Harley finely made theres smooth. Just make it so that you don't loose the alignment of the chain under load. Have fun, Dave
PS: Oh yea, Honda put the handle bars in rubber.
