The Bike is a Montesa Cota 6 Speed 123 cc
They started in 1972 to 1978, after that changed to a Cota 200cc

The square fork sliders, post-76 front guard mount look out of place on a 123. I think they might be from some other Montesa - maybe a late model 123 and I've never seen one before? Is the front wheel 21 inch or something smaller? Cota 123 came with smaller wheels than 21/18.

Yeh, it looks to me like a 172 roller (29M) w a 123 engine.
