Check the wires going to the tail light for good connection

Yes could easily be the Italian brake light running from the ignition coil instead of the lighting coil thing. Blown brake bulb plus shorted brake light switch =no spark. Who would think?

Did you try a different plug? Go for the low hanging fruit first. You said new points and new condenser. I have seen dirt or even iron flakes lodge in points once running and getting jostled. Plug caps have been known to fail randomly too. So many possibilities

Turn the fuel petcock on.

Seriously, the edge of the flywheel can cut the wiring harness that leads to the points plate.

Remove flywheel and look for cuts or wear on harness going to points plate.
