Default Tried bike for first time this afternoon: DIDNT WORK

Alright so I finished up putting my SkyHawk 66/80cc kit together today and I tested it out this afternoon and couldn't get it to start.

I put the gas/oil mixture (16:1) in about a minute before trying to start it, if it makes a difference.

I pedaled up to about 10 mph and then released the clutch. The bike slowed down considerably, so the piston was definitely pumping.

The only thing I can think of is the spark plug isn't firing, but i correctly connected the wires from the engine to the little black box thing that connects to the spark plug.

Do you have any suggestions as to what could be going wrong?

I appreciate the help
