Default Where to start?

hey everyone. I'm new to the forms, and haven't owned a bike in 20 years (except for dirtbike). I recently picked up a 1990 intruder 1400 for a price to good to pass up. It came not running and was told it ran when it was parked 5 years ago, and that it needs a new brake and clutch master. I threw a battery in it, put on s new oil filter and new oil and it fired up right away. I could make my money back parting it out from the seat and gas tank alone so to get it running made me very happy since my plan was to keep it. Now I'd like to know where to start with the clutch and break. The front break does not work at all, and the clutch is loose. It obviously needs new fluids and to be bleed, but it seems weird to me that both masters would go at the same time. I'm thinking the po may of done something wrong during basic matnence, and was wondering if anyone had ideas befor I start just throwing money at it.
