Hey all, I picked up a 72' CB100 not running this spring. Started to go through the restore process and running into some issues.

Bike will start and idle fine, any amount of throttle and it gives 1 good rev and dies, or pops and sputters and dies with throttle. Plug reads that its dry fouling, dry black sooty plug, too rich?

I've done the following to the bike:

-New Wiring Harness (stock was stripped)
-New points
-New Carb (New and old carb both duplicate the same throttle issues)
-New Battery

I've check for air leaks and messed with the mixture screw to no avail. Timings are correct, and gaps are set. Thinking it may be low compression??

Is there anything I missed or something anyone has experienced?
