Right now mine is 100% stock. I do have a QD windscreen on order and will be picking up a swingarm bag soon as I get back from sea.
19 Roadster.

My favorite sportster by far is the 48, but if I had to have one that would remain stock, it would be a roadster.

I voted for other, but there's actually 2 that I'd like to have one or both of, those being the 76 Liberty Edition and the 77 Confederate Edition.
