The sight glass will often get cloudy with age and impossible to see through. You can check the level by removing the reservoir cap? Is your front brake not working?

If the fluid is nasty, you might want to flush it out with some new. You never know how well the previous owner cared for it.

Like Wayne said, flush the fluid. Since you have no history I would do a full service and maybe replace the rubber brake lines, service the final drive etc. Click the link at the top of the page for the Knowledge base for help. I would read the new owners section while there.
