as is all the motorcycle manufacturers. I have never had a full tank rust. Ever. Proof to me is my 1980 BMW R100rs that sat for 15 years with a half full tank. The bottom half was like new. Top half looked like Luray Caverns. That bike is also why I don't like the "sealers". They often fail and separate clogging fuel filters. I ended up acid cleaning that one.
please direct me to a motorcycle OEM that sells/stores a fuel tank full of fuel.

Kreem is garbage... been there and have acid burns from removing that garbage from at least a handful of tanks.
POR15 or Caswell plating... its the tits for old and new tanks. The process takes ALOT of effort but worth the end result. I have a friend that actually made a fuel tank rotissiere that can descale/rust a tank nearly dry. Brilliantly simple invention that sounds like a slow rotating dryer with rocks in it.

If your bike was stored with 1980s gas... I can see the leaded stuff standing the test of time in a low humidity environment. But basing your beliefs on 1 tiny sample... um thats just not good practice.
Gas goes bad... unless youre buying 100LL or similar.
Bottom line... you drain fuel for storage. Your local FD would appreciate this too.
