You say there is a good spark at the plugs, but how have you checked this? Have you checked it with the extension tubes in place?
99% of the time lack of spark is because the tubes are breaking up. Try it with the HT leads direct onto the plugs.

Great to hear you are doing an Aprilia........ but what about the Ardea?Huh?

If you are getting a suck from the carb when you put your hand over it then imho there will be enough to draw in fuel. These cars had relitely low compression but not has low as earlier cars that still started. No wet plugs is a bit suprising given what you have said. Wait for the Aprilia explosion in the cam cover as fuel/easystart is going somewhere....

Have you got the plug leads in the correct firing order, sounds daft, but I have seen so many non-runner Aprilias with them incorrect.

yes we've both checked seperatly and even checked incase the disributer drive was half a turn out or something daft like that, after chatting with my dad again today we are both convinced its got to be fuel as none seems to be getting to the cylinders, even had the whole inlet manifold off  (NOW THAT WAS A JOB!!!!) incase something was blocking the ports on the head,  i just feel that if it were ignition then surely it would wet the plugs and not start, every time you take the plugs out they are bone dry ,certainly a strange one thats for sure,

It doesn't like what it considers to be swear words but it does throw you when it happens, bottomnal is another one when talking about a place where you store weapons.
