If the compression is good, the valves are probably ok. Spray just a little starter fluid in the intake and see if it starts. If it does the problem may be fuel related. If it doesn't start, it may be ignition. On a old bike, it is a good idea to remove the seat and tank and disconnect and clean all of the electrical connections you can. Use some electrical contact cleaner.
