    The process has begun and my 74 CB750 will be a runner this summer.
    The cleaning work is ongoing, but I need some extra help with the tank.

    It appears the previous owner sealed/painted/ or something inside the tank. No rust. It needs to be cleaned out and redone.
    Can't have this flaking stuff messing up the clean carbs!

    Is there someone who does this type of work in the Seattle metro area?

    Thanks,

    If it's been sealed, it could have done because of rust. But, it could also have been an attempt to cover up pin-holes...so be ready for that. I hate tank sealants.

    A better idea might be BentBike, for a tank in better internal condition. Then match the outer paint, possibly get lucky and find one the right colour. Dealing with the inside of tanks can be frustrating.
