I vote for the vinegar. I took a chance and bought a matching tank for my '97 Shadow ACE V1100C2 (maroon and cream) on eBay. From the pictures posted it looked heavily rusted. I paid $180.00 for the tank and $15 for white vinegar and viola. Brand new tank!

Once again the shadow family has helped me again! Thank you all for your advice and suggestions I truly appreciate it!! I will do the vinegar. Hopefully this is something someone with no motorcycle experience can do by watching YouTube videos! I will keep you guys posted on when I start this project/finish! Happy holidays and grateful for you guys!
Hey Aero, be advised that I had to let my tank sit for 5 days. Also, I used a hunk of chain I got at Home Depot as an agitator (some YouTube videos used nuts & bolts) and my chain got stuck on one of several "bracing" plates within the gas tank. If I were to do it again I would use a larger diameter chain like a large dogs choke chain.
