I had a similar issue on a car years ago, has the feed to the ignition been put on the wrong terminal? i.e. one that is not "live" when the starter operates? if so, then it causes exactly what you describe. One way to test is to supply the ignition circuit directly from the battery and operate the starter, results will be evident.
