I think the Softail Standard was made from 1998 to 2007. They put the wider (200mm) tire on them in 2006.

I have an 05 standard with a carb, which was hard to find, and a 150 tire (which I like better than the 200). They made a handful of carb'ed standards in 06, to my knowledge they're rare.

Last year of the custom before it was dropped was 99. I know I have one.

It has been slightly modified though as I never did care for "skinny front fender" on the softail
so I put a fatboy fender on and 16 inch wheel, among other things.

That was also the last year of the evolution motor for all you history buffs.
It was replaced by that but ugly deuce in 2000 that has also been dropped now to I understand.
