If it was stored with fuel in the tank:
1. The fuel filter should be replaced
2. You may to replace the fuel delivery system coming out of the tank
3. Remove the plug in the carb and reset the idel mixture
I just bought one store for 6 years - my issue is the bike will n ot idel but runs on the road like a bat out hell.

When you're saying "everything stops", do you mean everything electrical stops? If that's the case and it restarts in about two minutes, it sounds like something is tripping your main circuit breaker. I do not have a schematic for your bike but it has to be something that is not protected by the smaller fuses. If it were, the fuse would blow before the main tripped out. The main circuit breaker should be located right there with your other fuses. It'll be a metal can like device about a half inch wide, a half inch tall, and about an inch long. It should be 30-40 amps rated. Whatever the rating is, do not change it as it's designed to protect your wiring harness. It may have just gotten weak and needs to be replaced but this is rare. Have you added anything electrical lately? This could be just enough to "trip it over the edge".

You've already spotted the problem. 13.5 volts is not enough to keep the battery charged. It will slowly lose it's charge. You should be charging at 14.5-15.0 volts.
Check your regulator output. Look just behind the base of the rear cylinder and you'll see the wires coming out of the primary that go to the regulator. There's a plug in the line somewhere. Unplug it. You'll be measuring the output of the alternator so you'll be dealing with the wire on the alternator end of the plug. There are two metal contacts in the plug. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to do this test. Set the meter's function selector switch to AC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert one meter lead into each metal contact. It make no difference which lead goes where as you're measuring AC voltage. Your meter should read at least 25 volts or higher. If not, your stator is bad.
If you read 25 volts or more, your regulator needs replacing.
BTW: Early 1984 was the last year for a generator on the Sportster. Late 1984 to present, the bikes have alternators on them. Much better than the old generators. Much better.

Have u checked the starter connection?
Sounds like ur starter solenoid is malfunctioning, the starter relay and the starter switch.
Clean the battery terminal and the connector thoroughly.
Try to short the positive terminal connection of the solenoid and tell us wut happened.
