How rusty is your tank...?

I found these pictures on Facebook (Kawasaki Zephyr owners) and I think they are an eyeopener for all of us...

Mine was worse and had it professionally lined for $150. And they said it should never have any problems.

my local chopper shop (attitudes) use Cream on their builds but don't know about using it over rust . In my experience from work once the rust gets a hold it always finds a way back through :cry: hopefully getting your tank professionally lined will work
