Answers to questions
There are no major problems with it.
It's never been in an accident.
The odometer seems to be a bit wacky, it's been replaced and seems to indicate that it's going faster than expected.

It's a nice little bike, that is safe and ready to ride
I had a certified professional BMW motorcycle mechanic do the mechanical work, my contribution was mostly cosmetics.

Other info from the internet
Designed by Hans Muth (also credited with the R90S, the Suzuki Katana, and the R100RS) the R65LS hit dealer showrooms at that definitive 1980's moment when David Hasslehoff was chasing down baddies in his anthropomorphic Pontiac Trans Am.

The LS (Lexus Sport German for Luxury Sport) came in two colors-Henna Red and a Polaris metallic gray.

It's ambitiously futuristic front fairing, dual Brembo brakes and sculpted rear seat cowl made this bantam weight Sport-Tourer one of the quirkiest and most distinctive Airheads ever made.

To help distinguish the bike it came fitted with stiffer suspension, and a different Carb and valve spec to give it an extra 5hp over the standard model. It proved popular for its short, three-year run, with some 6,400 produced.
