Are the carbs clean? I have the same bike as you. Mine would do the same thing, and the carbs were completely gunked up. I didn't have to totally rebuild them, just take the float bowl off, and the brass jets and a can of carb cleaner. My bet is that those passages are clogged.
Are you running a fuel filter? I would run one no matter what due to the age of the bike and the possibility of rust in the tank.

Yeah i rebuilt the carbs cleaned the bowl and jets. And yeah im running an old fuel filter. I should probably change that. And clean my gas tank. Its weird cuz if i put gas into the carbs itll run until the gas i put in is all burnt up.

If you remove the fuel line from the carbs, is there fuel coming through the line?

Shes alive! Got her running and idling on her own. The problem was the fuel pump it wasnt working at all. So i cut it out and ran a hose from the petcock to the carbs.
