Bikes of that age only need a few things to run.

Compression
Fuel
A spark at the right time

One of those three is defective?

Compression, check with a compression tester
Fuel, is it clean and fresh. Is it getting to the spark plug, it is wet with gasoline?
A spark at the right time. New spark plug and engine correctly timed. A nice fat blue spark if you put the plug against the cylinder head?

SOURCE: need to know where to look for the year or i.d.#

IT's on the side of the lower left frame rail, about 6" in front of your left footpeg. The left engine cover sticks out here and crud often builds up so wash it good and you'll see it.
