First thing to do is replace points/condensor, plug and plug cap with new. If it still wont run then its almost certainly to do with the carb. Sometimes bikes that have been standing for many years suffer from carb blockages in the very small drillings of the pilot circuit, that may not be visible, and will make bikes very hard to start. If it does look like the carb, then its worth trying ultrasonic cleaning, but in some cases replacement will be the only way to deal with the problem.
