    Get yourself some vinegar and fill the tank up. It will clean all the rust. Nontoxic low hassle and cheap.

    And you can even throw some marbles in there. Just count how many you put in so you get them all out. LOL

    But then after that you still should re-line the tank.

    he could reline it himself too. Can get away with out relining if you neutralize the vinegar real well, then spray wd40 in there to keep it from flash rusting and leaving the gas tank fuel after each ride.

    I'm just saying... it's better to have it lined.
