it would have rusted anyway due to moisture in the air.especially if it was outside.
you need to get a sander and just sand it all off using 100-120 grit making sure you get every little bit of it.
then it needs to be etch primed but make sure you don't touch it as sweat etc will start the rust process all over again.
i recommend wearing rubber gloves while doing it.

There's a trade product called de-oxadine (probably spelt wrong) go to a panel beating supply shop and get some. It removes very light rust you just brush it on even if you sand it first I'd suggest but check with a sanel shop.
