This could be a result from a couple of different things however if your vibration is at idol and has and keeps getting worse it is proably one of the motor mounts. These can very difficult to see so if you remove one there is a thin lip above the rubber and metal bracket and if that is not there then the mount is no good

Ok, that's better. This is an engine that has run well before but now something is wrong.
I could be a magnet on the stator but usually they'll make a loud knocking noise. But one magnet could have come loose and simply moved. The only way to find out is to pull the primary and the stator. It's much easier to do on that bike than it is a Shovelhead in that you do not have to pull the inner primary. If you find this to be the problem and you replace the rotor, make sure you check the rotor for good magnetism. Don't laugh, we installed on a few weeks ago and the alternator would not generate any electricity. Turned out the rotor magnets didn't have enough magnetism. You could tell by holding a screwdriver to the magnets, the new one just didn't hold the screwdriver like it should have. Installed the old rotor, everything was fine. Harley had a problem with a batch of them and they don't know where they're all at so check it out before you install it.
Also, with that many miles on the bike, you need to check the motor mounts, both front and rear. The rubber will seperate from the metal parts of the mount. Check the upper stabilizer link as well. Check the primary chain adjustment as well.
As long as the engine is running properly and not making a noise or missing, this is the only thing I can think of at the moment.
Good Luck with it.
BTW: I've got a '94 Wide Glide. I love it. Wouldn't trade it for a brand new Softail.
