Sounds like a vacuum leak or possibly gunked up carbs. Run some sea foam thru it and if that doesnt help start looking for either sticking linkage or rotted vacuum hoses

Excluding any other carb problems this is the typical symptom of the carbs being out of synch. If you have the gauges try re-synching them

Could be carb.s but could be ingintion too. Stock points or does it have an aftermarked elec. ignition?

For both, check time, and that the spark advance it working and intact.

If stock points, check condenser.

If elec.: Do you have the 'choke coil' on mounted to the ballast resistor? If not it will cause an issue similar to what you have.

If it slow going back to idle, could be your slides are sticking. Pop the caps and clean them good. Make sure you don't mix them up
