This sounds like the main jets are varnished up and possibly the float(s) are sticking. Pull the carbs off the bike and clean them with carb cleaner. Remount the carbs then balance and sync them. On a bike that old I would spring for carb rebuild kits. The kits MAY have additional parts for other carbs along with yours. Just use the parts that match the ones from your carbs.

you will have to do some leg work to find compatable forks. here in toronto we have a few good places that stock tons of old bikes..im sure you can get a front end that fits, take off the trees with the forks and go shopping

there is only one tank to fill on your bike, your getting confused by the reserve. The reserve is just on the fuel tap itself. It has three positions, on , off and reserve. In the on position your fuel tap will be able to drink about 90% of your fuel tank and then it wont be able to drain anymore, then you must turn your fuel tap to the reserve position and it will be able to drink rest of your tank approx 10% that is left. So next time you fill up at a petrol station make sure your fuel tap is set to on, then when your bike starts to splutter out of fuel you can turn your fuel tap to reserve and get yourself to the petrol station to fill up, making sure you then turn your tap to on again. If you keep running out on the reserve it can cause debris in your tank to clog your carb up.
hope this helps
