Water probably entered through a vent hole in the SS, then bike was hung upside down for extended amount of time and rusted internally. The original chrome plating acids might have also started the internal corrosion if it was not all washed out after chroming. There might be similar damage in the other SS that is not through the tube. You could have the SS replaced, would just need to grind all the chrome away from the cluster where the SS joins so that the braze can adhere to the underlying steel.
