Advice on 92 K75S

I want to get a commuter bike for the spring. I am going to look at a 92 K75S. 66k on the clock, fairly well documented service history. I would be riding it 100-150 miles per week....other than the usual stuff....what should I ask about? Would this make a good around town bike?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Advice on 92 K75S

A great wee bike. Economical with a lovely sweet engine. I put about 40,000 miles on mine with no major issues. Things to watch for seem to be cooling fans seized, starter motor bushes and maybe clutch cables (lead a spare next to the one in situ and it is a 5 minute fix). Much easier to work on than the LT and plenty of second hand spares and you can even change handle bars and fairings if you want.

Lots of info here

I would have another one.
