Start simple and don't assume anything - like the shop removed the tank and thoroughly cleaned it before putting fresh gas in. Just because it has spark to the plug doesn't mean the plug's not shorting. Replace the plug with new or known good one.
If that doesn't fix it, shoot a bit of carb cleaner or ether into the airbox and see it if will fire that way. If it does, I'll bet you a sixpak that the petcock is turned off or the vacuum tube to the petcock is compromised.
The bike, as you describe it, is certainly worthy of some repair $$.
Keep us posted and good luck.
