Default 1996 Sportster wont start

I have a newly aquired 1996 1200 Sportster. I took it out the other day and then today when I jumped on it would not start. The horn and blinkers work fine and the odometer lights up. However, the headlight and N light will not light up and the bike will not start. I have the key to on and switch to start but when I hit the ignition switch absolutely nothing happens. No clicking, no noise, nothing. I changed out 3 of the 4 fuses (HD store only had 2 15A and 1 10A). I did play around with the two 10A to see if that would help but it did not. What else can I try?
