coolant looks like milk shake

I have an '80 gl1100 and my coolant looks like a milk shake. I just noticed this. I purchased the bike this spring, put over 7k miles on it, and don't know when the last time the coolant was changed. The bike has over 100k miles on it and has been well taken care of. What could cause this.
