There is a fellow on this site that could make you a nice copy of a TA125 tank to put on there.
is the engine in the TA125 the same as the one in the RD125? the two stroke air cooled parallel twin

PS: fouled plug will spark until its under presser and coated with fuel.

Did you leave the fuel valve open and fill the crank case with fuel? That would do the plug in.

I changed out the spark plug and it started, then when I left the throttle closed after a couple of seconds of being at around 5,000 rpm and it shut off, ie it isn't idling well- any ideas?
