    I got an 04 and a 67.

    I take trips with the 04 two up, all day, several days. Smooth as butter.

    The 67, well, its a 900 Ironhead. Rattles the teeth. Both are good, just different.

    If you are looking to "chop" and "chop it drastically", I don't think you could go wrong with a 91-03 XL.

    I think your missing the point of the question. These are RUBBER mounted

    say what? My 04 is RUBBER mounted. lol. My 67 is rigid.

    OP said "My question is should i buy a rubber mounted sportster or a older model? I heard that the pre rubber mounted models vibrate a lot at higher speeds. Any feedback will be helpful!
    Thank you. "

    The thread went on talking about rubber vs non rubber....??

    So for the OP, if you want comfort, go rubber, if you want a bone shaker get an ironhead. If you want less bone shaking, but not too comfortable, get a 91-03.

    Oh. I dint think the 04"s had the rubber frame mounts. I know in 05 they changed the neck stem some how and now the sprinters want fit. And also has those big ass rear axel bolts. I had to find an older rear wheel and build my hard tail to match that



    But my 2006 rubber mount i built feels about the exact same as my old sportster. Both do 70-90 on the interstate just fine. I'd buy and chop whatever you can find the best deal on

    So sorry about that. I thought the new frames started in 05 for some reason.

    No prob..I was just like 'what the hell'? lol.

    Yeah, an inline springer won't bolt up on an 04 and newer. 04 had the 0.75 axle and 05 went to a 1 inch axle.

    Peace.

    about 2 weeks out on starting my 06 chop project. Has anyone had any problems with the hard tail mounting and staying sturdy?

    I just did my '14 with no issues. Solid as a rock. I used a vtwin weld on. Not the fanciest but it worked and rolls straight so I'm happy. Plus I think the rubber mount ones look cleaner than the older ones that use the engine mount as the lower bolt on point.

    That'll do you well. My buddy has an 05, there's more "stuff" added to these to make the rubber mount system work...in my opinion the rigid mounts make for a cleaner build...both in looks and in how much stuff you gotta deal with.

    Yeah they vibrate but it's not that bad...I like the shake.
