I think my battery is dead on my 1966 Vespa 150 Super

I have a 1966 150 Super fully restored Vespa. It has been running great but has been sitting for the last couple of months and now I cannot get it started. I have changed the spark plug but it doesn’t kick over at all. I am wondering if the battery is dead. I noticed the horn or lights do not work so I am guessing the battery might be the issue. Does anyone have any thoughts and if so, do you have a charger you might recommend?

Battery does run horn and lights but not needed to start. Are you getting spark and fuel?

I have a couple of 1966 vespas. Neither one has a battery. Both have magneto ignition. Someone has added a battery to yours...is my guess. Does it have turn signals or an electric start. I’m sure it does not have battery ignition....so a battery would not have anything to do with it not starting. Pull plug, hook it up and ground the plug....kick the engine over and see if it has a spark.
