Are you getting power to anything when you turn on the ignition? If no then ignition switch. Otherwise id start with the starter relay(if equipped), neutral switch(if equipped), solenoid, kill switch, starter wires.

If its anything like my old 82maxim the wiring on old bikes is .

Get a multimeter. See if there is power at the starter when u push the start button then work your way back. Check the starter relay and Depending on how long its been sitting I would take off the stator cover and rotate the motor by hand to see if its seized and to get some lube flowing.

If when u push the start button and the lights dont dim its probably not even getting to the starter cuz that usually causes the lights to dim a bit.

Does the engine turn with out spark plugs? Does anything click when you push the starter button?

the fact that the engine doesnt turn over when push starting it also concerns me, if it is in fact locked up something in the crank case may at wosrt case scenario be siezed.

(its always a good idea to push start a prospective bike such as this BEFORE buying it) even if it is hard...usually the motor will turn freely or it will not giving a better indication. although such info is not of use to you at the moment.
