If someone has changed the regular tank off of a Nightster to a larger one, how can you tell It's really a true nigtster? Is there an advantage to call it a "nightster" even though it is also a sportster?

There aren't any advantages over one Sportster to another other then engine size and what you personally prefer in a bike (cruising, style, handling, black, chrome etc). All the sportster models have somewhat different riding applications and alot of models are simply different mainly because of looks

It is so true though.
Harley builds a factory custom sorta bike like a 48 or 72 to keep with styles people build and then people change the bars, pipes air cleaner and paint it!!!

I saw a roadster same color and paint scheme as mine with 12 or so inch apes. It made me sad!!! You don't put apes on a roadster!!!

No it is not! It was my first Harley in 1972 and we were running Triumphs, BSA's and Sportsters. Back then we called dressers "garbage wagons".

A true, lean, great looking bike no matter what you do to it.

Now that I am older and fatter, I have a half a Sportster (FXDC)
