Yea definitely look at the carb and air filter first, that's the easiest thing to fix and the place to start. Those old carbs are touchy though so it has to be clean and you have to get the air/gas ratio right for the bike to run right. sounds like you might be running thick - too much gas or not enough air. and you're right, the carb might be gummed up from the old crummy tank.
