If you don't mind, if I get the CB 75 or another 125 I want, both barn finds but motors that aren't locked up, I'm asking if I can ask you a few questions about your process on the tank of your 57. Both of these have very rough tank linings. I filled one with gas and mixture of oil and semi pressurized with an air hose and didn't find any leaks but that might be covered by the rust. Still good outside but will need a lot of work.Yep, me also.
Last tank I cleaned was out of a 1957 BMW Isetta. Used pea gravel and Naval Jelly. After the rust was cleaned out, coated the inside with zinc chromate (the green stuff). I understand that this is no longer available. It certainly worked great, though.
I hope to find out about them soon as I want them as a winter project. I have had a wish list of having these two bikes. The 360t because of nostalgia (mine), and the other because they are very light and lots of room to work on, easy transport (can even put a tommy lift on my truck for easy loading without need for a trailer.
Back to the subject. I will be asking about what you used and the results. I've not seen pea gravel used but that seems to be a great idea. Large enough not to get stuck and should be a great abrasive.
Thanks for looking at my post and for your response. Appreciated.
