Smile Motorcycle starts but won't run

I have an '83 yamaha virago xv750, I fixed most of the wiring between the battery, ignition, and starter. Now the bike turns over when I start it and occasionally I'll hear the engine start but as soon as I let off of the ignition everything stops. Can some body tell me what's up?

OEM wire?

I hear there is a good deal on a 600 that eats 750's for breakfast..
