Yep, unless there's a hole in something, I agree with Ed, more than likely your floats are sticking and not shutting off the flow of gas into the bowl, so it's coming out the over flow hose. Easy enough to fix. That's a pretty old bike so there may be "stuff" in your bowl, If you have to remove the float bowl, it should be self explanatory as to what to clean. In a rough sort of way, it works kind of like your toilet bowl, when the water rises "gas" in the bowl, the floats rise and shut off the flow of fluid. Almost misspelled a word there, Josh would have gotten me good!!
