By isolating the engine with bushings, you must separate the jackshaft from the engine, otherwise you are defeating the purpose. I have a similar set up on a chopper I am building using urethane bushings and a tubular jackshaft mounted to the seat post. It's hard welded because I'm going custom. I plan on offering up something very soon that will be for Schwinn Stingrays that will have clamshell mounts, urethane bushings, and a built in jackshaft. The Stingray rear wheel will have a 5 speed freewheel and derailer with a grip shifter.
Also offered up soon will be disc brake adaptors for Stingray wheels. I'm working closely with Jim from Creative Engineering. I also dreamed up a specialized dual independent/unison brake lever for the brakes. The prototype things I plan to market can be seen on my bike build, which is the R&D platform. It's located on the other site, so I hope I don't get flamed.

Thats a really interesting project.
