New Battery and still nothing?

I have a 81 gs450, it to has been sitting around since 86. Ran when it was parked, the battery was hooked up the whole time. I got a new battery thinking this would solve everything.

The lights, blinkers, gear indicators and all work fine. But no noise from the starter. I tried pushing the bike down a hill and letting the clutch out and no spark.

I put new NGK plugs.

What could be the problem?

I pretty sure i have already checked the ignition switch, but i will check them again when i go home.

The gas tank and carbs were off when the bike was given to me, but not sure how long that had been off, probably a long time!
