Information for fuel tank

Hello guys! Can please someone help me out with what fuel tanks are suitable for my bobber ? I love the Speedmaster 2018 tank but I can't find any...are others models that I can fit?
(I was boring and I started to clean up my bobber pic.....

The Speedmaster 2018-2019 tank is a direct swap. Many people have purchased a new one from the dealer which is costly. I found a used one on E-Bay from a dealer for a great price. If you are patient you will come across one as more Speedmasters are purchased.
Trirocket3 has installed a T120 tank but took much fabrication to make it fit, I believe only the fuel pump is a drop in replacement. The only other model tank to probably fit is the new SpeedTwin (more difficult to find as they are not in every dealer yet) or 2016 onward Truxton but I have not heard of anyone doing this swap.

Hi,

As has been said I believe only the 2018/9 Speedmaster tank is a direct swap. I purchase mine new (and the headlight) from the dealership.

Cheerio,

Roy

Just saw this on eBay. It is selling for about twice of what I paid for mine, but this is the first one I have seen in about 6+ months. This is a strictly bolt on tank for the Bobber that will increase your fuel capacity by around 33%. It will NOT last!
