Startup solutions? Please read!!!!!

Hey i just started riding a couple months ago. bought my first bike in November a 1980 honda cb750k only 8500miles on it. bike was running when i bought it, rode it maybe 3 times after that. had it in my garage up until now cleaning it up.

anyway brought it to my local shop had them install my exhaust clean/tune the carbs change oil and brake fluid. bike was running nicely after that until a few days later biked suddenly died on me in first gear and wouldn't start back up.
next morning fired right up seemed to be running ok but it kept dying after a while and eventually wouldn't idle and was a pain to start up. rode it to shop guy told me i might have flooded the carbs drain them.

Ride home from shop bike dies again in first gear! but starts up again only to die in 2nd gear about a mile from home. walk/coast the bitch home call up the mechanic and tell him what happened. he thinks i have no fuel tells me to try and start in on reserve...that's when i realize i've had it on reserve for the past few days of riding! DOH!

So i did drain the carbs like he said to later that night and alot of fuel came out of all four, i felt relieved. HOWEVER, i went to fire her up next morning and got nothing. starter was working but engine didn't want to turn over

What should i do from here? PLEASE HELP WITH INSTRUCTION. THANK YOU. Hope i didn't really **** it up
