[Honda-C70] No signs of life after bike rested on it's side for roughly a week


My '81 C70 just showed up and upon unloading it, I tried to see what sort of state it was in but turning the key showed no signs of life.

The bike started up and ran approximately 2 weeks ago so I pulled the battery which looked to be in decent shape. Water level (?) looked to be in the right range as well.

I don't have a meter (yet) so I couldn't check the battery's vitals.

Has anyone else experienced this when a bike has been on it's side for roughly a week?
