when buying any used bike , condition is everything...things like brake pads, air filter, oil
and filter, cables, spark plugs, are consumable items and should be checked or replaced as needed ...oil and filter changes are the most important in a bikes service history , as well as tire wear ...the concours bikes while looking like a sport bike , most generally were ridden by older touring riders so wont be as abused as a 600 sportbike will be most of the time... check the bodywork for cracking as one that old will probably have some issues...bad bodywork will kill the deal for me as i like em in stock condition and finding bodywork for older sportbikes is a challenge at best...
