When Did H-D Stop Coating Inside Fuel Tank?

When I put the '07 tank on my '03 Night Train, I noticed the '07 tank was just bare steel inside... WTF? Did they just cheap out? Next time I have it off, maybe I'll coat it.

Keep it fuill most of the time and it won't rust. If you must coat it, stay away from Kreem........

I Kreemed my tank years ago, did the trick, holding up well over a decade later. A buddy is ready to do his tank soon. Is there something we should know? What's recommended?

Why bother with coating with anything?
I have never had a rusty tank problem with anything
that I bought new.
You might have problems with garage queens though.

I don't think they were actually coated per se, more like some chemical conversion process or plating...perhaps cadmium?

Did you buy the bike new? My '02 tank has no noticable coating inside ...
