What is this bike?

I was walking into the gym this morning and this was parked by the front of the building. I know very little about Harley's and find it amusing that I was so impressed with the bike as I ride a ZX-14.

Very different kind of ride, guess I am getting older... Anyway, I figured that someone had spent a ton of money on chrome parts but I really love this bike. Please help me identify which model it is and the approximate model year. Thanks and hope that you are having a good holiday weekend.

Looks like a Harley Davidson Softail Standard. Not sure of the year as they haven't changed in ages.

That rear brake pedal must weigh at least 15 pounds!

It's a twin-cam so it could be as old as a 2000 - I think that's the first year they put the twin-cam in the softails. Probably a standard - the silver engine cases are a clue, but the guy put a fair amount of chrome on it.

I've had a number of Harleys - just sold my Road King. It's a different ride, but it has its attraction. I like riding a bike with forward controls like that, but not on a long haul. My biggest gripe with having a Harley is that I don't want to be associated with 80 - 90% of the douchebags that ride them!
