78 Motobecane 50v - No Spark - Ignition System Repair. HELP!

Brad Florence /

I have a 78 Motobecane 50v (12V)

I am currently not getting a spark.

So far I replaced:

HT Ignition Coil, Spark Plug Wire, Spark Plug Boot/Cap, and Spark Plug.

I also cleaned the points and set the point gap. Double checked that the timing is correct.

Whats next? Should I wire an external condenser? Is there a way to test if internal ignition coil is bad? Should I Replace the points? Or should I just replace the whole thing with the CDI from treats?

Also need some help on how to test these things with a multimeter.

Thanks so much,
