In Motion Twin Shock Trials, supply what you need.

Front guard has a bracket that holds it on to the fork legs, sold by In Motion

Rear guard is just bolted onto the brackets on the frame.

It's a flimsy metal bracket that is welded in between the rear engine mounts on that frame tube that runs horizontally just in front of the swingarm pivot. Just look at at the pics, a picture is worth a thousand words.

The 1st pic is of the last model Cota 247 ('77/'78) which had vertically mounted air filter and wore squarish plastic guards like the 348, pics 2 and 3 are a '74 Cota 247 with horizontal air filter box which wore the rounded alloy guards.

Different years, different air boxes, different guards.

No probs, make your bracket from 2.0mm or better to stand the test of time, std appears to be 1.6mm.  Just for those that think pic 1 doesn't look right, I agree, it's a pic I found on here or the internet and although I hope the inlet tubes are not piercing that rear guard I find it hard to see where it can draw any air, I think either wrong rear mudguard or a too short rear mudguard bracket or bit of both.

Looks like an optical illusion, I recon the inlets are maybe 1/4" from the mudguard but the camera flash means you see no shadow
