MOTOBECANE stalls

my 1970 motobecane stalls and will die if i lean it to one side, if i lean it to the opposite side it picks up rpms. one time it died while on a ride and it would only run with the choke on, after a little while it ran fine. any ideas would be helpful because i'm riding it for at least 6 hours on a trip at the end of august to go put a deposit on a 2002 tomos targa lx

What kind of carb do you use. How long you had the bike for? Id say clean the carb.
