All stock? A 2016+ Roadster. But with modifications allowed a 2008 Roadster which is what I have...prefer the big 4.5g tank, better instrumentation, full fenders, regular tail light and plate mount, and overall looks to the current version.

Just wait until I'm done with my 16 Roadster. It won't be stock, but it'll be sweet!

Your 08 is looking good, though!

Thanks! To me the ideal Evo Sportster Roadster would combine the best features of the 08 (tank, instruments, fenders, etc.) and the 16+ (wheels, brakes, suspension)...have seen a few people work towards that here and elsewhere from either end (year wise).
Will be good to see yours when it is done.

I'm a total noob here (and to Harley's) but I bought my bike because I saw a picture of Bluto's on the ADV forum and fell in love with the style. And mine is totally stock and I plan on keeping it that way. Probably the first bike I've owned that I plan on keeping stock. About the only aftermarket item I can think of is steel front brake lines, and I never consider that a modification, rather something that should be done in the factory for every motorcycle made.
