Breaks acting as engine kill switch

Hi! I am the proud. New owner of a 1980 concord shadow with a minerelli v1 engine. When I first tried starting the bike, the engine would start but when I hit the breaks, it died. I was advised to remove the break light switch plugs and tape them together. This fixed the problem. I replaced the break light switches (thanks treatland!) but when I tried starting it, I couldn’t even get the engine to turn over. I have tried replacing the rear bulbs and still nothing. Obviously, I would like to get the break lights working again for safety purposes. Does anyone have any experience with these types of problems?
