Best Way to Anchor Pedestall Sink (with no Pedestal)

I'm considering a Toto Promenade sink but instead of using the pedestal, I want to use chrome legs. I see the need to secure the sink to the wall in a very very secure way as the legs will add very little weight support. The sink is 27" wide and shipping weight is 53 lbs. Is there an anchor that can handle it? (The legs will be made with chrome tubing and ball bearings).

If legs are available with that sink, all you need is shear force bolts at the wall. But I am not familiar with pedestals that forgo the pedestal.

No warranty or guarantee is implied with this advice.

Older square pedestal sinks have two indentations that will accommodate the type support you say. But what are the purposes of the ball bearings? For you to achieve adequate support in the wall, you will have to span between the studs directly behind the sink with a 2x12 brace, then lag screw into that to hold the sink. No other fastener will hold in the sheetrock or tile wall, alone.
