First newbie question of many...

...first of all, hello I am glad to be part of this site, it seems pretty awesome so far.

Second, yes I did search, I know some forums flame newbies for not searching. I may suck at searching, but at least I put in the effort.

Lastly, and most importantly, I was just given a CBR 600 F from my brother as a "fix-it-upper" and I already discovered that the entire inside of the fuel tank is lined with rust...HELP!

Thank you for your assistance.

the outside may be in near perfect condition but the inside seems to be a mess. There prob is a way to get the rust out of the tank but the effort may not be worth it when you can just get another and slap it on.

some body shops I know if you bring them the tank can clean the inside, and then they use an epoxy to coat the interior, I had it done on an old 73 honda 100cc dirt bike I rebuilt, worked great and never had a problem with it after
