No spark checklist

Bike is a Cimatti Gran Prix XL w/ Minarelli v1 and CEV system

I was able to ride until about last month due to a soft seize (I think) after letting it cool off and draining the tank in order to put a proper 32:1 ratio in (I think the seize was due to me eyeballing oil amount), it would start and then die after about 10 mins of riding.

Then after 2 times of that (start then die), it wouldn't start.

I got frustrated and put it away for a while. I'm now trying to start it and I checked spark. None

I cleaned points and put a new NGK b6hs plug in. Still no spark.

So my question is, what should I check first when it comes to the wiring of the bike? The CEV key thing, taillights, something else? How can I get spark on a bike that was running great a month ago?
