Could be several things.  Check the fluid reservoir first, the 
rubber grommets that attache the reservoir to the master 
cylinder deteriorate and leak at around this age.  I recently
changed both on the '84 5KS ($7 each at the dealer, was 
leaking too much to check around for better price). 

You may also have air in the line.  It could also be caused
by a swelling rubber brake hose, sticky caliper, even a 
bad bomb.  Most prudent thing to do would be to check
the whole hydraulic/brake system, checking the most 
obvious first. 

Good Luck,
