Bobber v Harley '48 tank size

So from what I can see the '48 tank holds 1.2 litres more gas. Not a lot more.

7.9 v 9.1litres

No it's the other way round, the Bobber holds 1.2litres more than the 48 and it's more fuel efficient too.

I use to own a 48 and typically the fuel warning light would come on after 50miles, which is probably why I have no issue with the Bobber's small tank...an 85mile range with 40 in reserve that's luxury!
