Welcome .....low miles is good but they can have their own peculiar issues .......Do not be surprised when you use it to get oil leaks due to oil seal and gaskets having dried up, many seal them selves some may need replacing and some respond well to the addition of the Redex oil seal additive available in many stores Wilko are good at the moment, This does what it says on the bottle .....Personally I found that a shot of the fuel type redex seems to stop some of the issues caused by ethanol in fuel ....have fun , enjoy and ride it Guzzis will cover 100k miles with only basic servicing oil and filter changes and such....Change the oil regularly is the key Opie oils on the "Oilman" thread are not only helpful they are good on price, deliver to your door AND as a Guzziriders member give an added 10% discount !!!

hiya and welcome.
8k is top money but if it’s in top condition go for it.
As said elsewhere, 1000 cc Le Mans is an American (called CX) version

Unlikely - and for his sake, I hope not!

CX100 was just a tarted Spada with the small valve engine and 30mm carbs. This one 'looks' to be running 36mm pumpers. I'd hope this is a bored out 850 Le Mans (although in that case why not 40mm carbs like proper Le Mans 1000s?).

If it was me I'd want to know for sure what it is. Receipts for engine work? Frame/ engine number?  I'd even be extracting a carb screw to see if it was a stepped bolt.

Looks in nice condition though.

Good point. In fact I have a mate with a Mk 1 Le Mans that has been running for years with his old Spada engine (of indeterminate mileage but well over 100k) in since the original died. Goes well enough.
