i wouldnt take it to a shop, you can do it your self for less

you can get a gallon of Behrs concrete and rust etcher at home depot or some place for about 12 bucks, its pretty much phosphoric acid which is also in coca cola,

i have used the same gallon repeteadly for many uses and tanks,

just make sure to wrap some plastic or something aorund your bike so it doesnt hurt the paint, fill it up with the the etcher and swich it about and leave it in for awhile, i have left in in over night and its been fine, make sure you move it around a bunch to get all the tank, i have never had problems with it ruining the petcock or anything,

as the stuff works you can see the rust and stuff flat to the top and dissolve, when your done make sure you rinse it out thorughly with a garden hose and then just run some inline filters 247
