Does it start and run?
Guess a full service on all fluids.
All filters.
Pads and new disc's.
A good check for any rust that may have started on the body.
The general stuff to start with man.

have a good look at the fuel tank, filler neck, lines, filters and pump.
if they are in good/usable nick it would still be a good idea to fit an inline filter, crud from the tank block lines and cause ya headaches.
be good to refresh the brakes and gear linkages as well.

good luck with it, nice to see more of these on the road
