With that age of a carbuerator Id definitely have it rebuilt or at least replace the needle / seats and bowl gaskets.. sounds like the floats may have absorbed fuel and sunk inthe float bowl.. or the needle valves are just shot.. either way a fuel leak on a bike is a dangerous situation..

Good luck!
