The 2 main things to check are the state of the exhaust pipes right before the cans where they're near the back wheel, they rust like nothing else. And the inlet manifold (rubber thing between carb and cylinder) as those tend to crack underneath. So bring a little mirror and torch. ;-)

Other than that, telltale walking-away signs are the owner who fires up the bike and immediately starts revving the hell out of it when it's still cold.

And then once you've got it, get in the habit of checking the oil every time you stop for petrol, at least for the first few thousand miles. Oil change interval is a rather short 2000 miles, and most of 'em tend to use at least some oil in between. Which can be a shock if you're used to watercooled inline fours. ;-)
