Motobecane 40 not starting

Been working on this for the past few weeks, put it back together and... it won't start.

Before:

Gas from second tank (body tank was rusted)

Bendy intake

#68 jet in 15/15 SHA

Now:

Main tank treated with Evaporust + Redkote

New petcock

Malossi shorty intake

#60 jet in 15/15 SHA

All new cables (brakes, throttle, choke, decomp)

Has spark, compression, and fuel is flowing just fine. When I pedal I get a steady putting, but it just doesn't start.

Figured it out! Issue was that I didn't grind the malossi intake down quite enough, it wasn't seating completely on the right side. Once that was fixed, it started right up!
