rusty tank

I am going to be restoring a 1973 TS185 that I just acquired recently. One big thing is that the tank has rust all over the inside. I'm not sure what the best method of getting it cleaned up would be, any tips would be helpful.

also, anyone that has any other general tips for the restoration of an older bike like this would be appreciated.

Also, might want to check They have a product that seems to be a good one step, paint safe, non-corrosive fix. There is a review of it at You can also send them your tank and they will do it for $145-$155. Anybody know anything else about these guys or their product? I ask because I too have a rusted tank to clean.
