I'm going to look at a very nice 85 Westy on Sunday. I've owned several bug and a couple of 69 Westys but never anything older. I know the person who owns this one and she's the type that likes to take care of everything. Just wondering if there should be specific things I should look at.

Thanks!

Lots of great info here...

Start by scrolling down to general and look for the Bus buyers guide thread. It starts with a long PPI checklist.

Enjoy!
