Default Audi 90 CS Starting Issue

Hey all, my 94 90 CS has been sitting for 2 weeks or so and when I went to jump start it today it wouldn't start. The engine begins to turn but then the starter solenoid starts clicking. I took a video of what happens but cannot post attachments, I'll try and find a way to link you guys the video. In the mean time any quick thoughts of what it could be, I know the starter has never been replaced but like I said it does start to turn the engine.

I was able to upload it to Youtube. I'm going to check if the starter is accessible to be tapped with a mallet and try that next.

charge the battery again, the clicking usually indicates low voltage

Ok, I'll leave a battery tender on it for a while and try again later. I'll report back with results.
