Sounds like you have a project. The engine will turn over? And you do have compression?
I agree with your accessment on the carb - probably needs work and maybe even a professional rebuild.
The electric sounds like it needs lots of cleaning up.
Do you have spark at the plugs? Are you able to check time? Points clean? Check all this stuff. You can find the answers to most of your questions at the Honda Riders Club page and elsewhere (like what is the gap for the points - what plug and gap - where are the time marks) It is too much to put here.
The starter switch operates a starter relay. It may not function at all. Find it and check your voltages. should be 12 volts on three of the 4 lugs, 2 lite wires and two heavy wires.
It is possible that all that works but the starter doesn't. You can jump the starter from the battery with a heavy cable to see it it actually operates. MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS IN NEUTRAL BEFORE YOU TO THIS.
I think this will gte you started.
Good luck with your project.
