Not trying to be funny or sound stupid or anything, just curious
not curious in buying or anything, just curious of the life span of the G/S
then again , maybe its the age, not the miles
Mine had 21K miles on it when I bought it and looked WAY worse than that eBay one.... yes to a fork rebuild, final drive rebuild, trans rebuild as well as exhaust valve guides...

Low miles don't really mean much when you are talking about a thirty year old BMW...
