New to CX500 world

Pulled an ‘81 CX500 out of a shed last week. Engine turns from front crank nut and pistons move up and down as they should; oil is clean and full, all lights, horn and signals work with a new battery but I get nothing when the starter button is pushed, no clicks, no love.

relay? Starter frozen?
Suggestions?
Thanks

nevermind! not sure this helped but I saw another thread on here with the same issue and forgot that maybe the clutch needed to be pulled in when in gear? so tired that and after pressing the button a few times the starter started to click then chuckle and then spin and big fat white sparks appeared at the plugs! whoa whoa
