Buying an older wee

So I'm buying a 2006 Wee with 2300 miles on it, and I was wondering if there's anything specific I should look at maintenance or wear wise. The bike's been garaged if not used in traveling.

The brake lines, and rubber hoses look like they are in excellent condition. The fork seals look good.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

At 2300 miles there isn't any wear or issues. The bike should look about new unless the previous owner used it as a dirt bike.

I'd change the oil, lube the chain, check the tire pressure, fill the gas tank and ride on.
