Stripping paint off gas tank?

Hi guys,

Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to strip a gas tank down to the aluminum? I have a neglected K75 I bought off a harley guy that needs a ground-up restore.

Thanks!

When I did up a 84 K100 used sandblasting on the tank. If you go down this road be careful on the edges though.
