Pretty rare for a head gasket leak on a Vic motor. If the leak is on the left side. Look at the drain hole for the spark plug tubes. There is a couple of o-rings that can fail, Look at the bolts on the cam chain adjusters, and then clean it all up, and see if it is weeping out of pourus casings, and not the gaskets. If it is weeping the fix is a couple of brass washers, and cap nuts.
Unless you personally know the history of the bike; the mileage is suspect. Bikes with yellow turn indicatos in the speedo are known for resetting to zero if the battery dies
