Looks like a 68-73 to me. It's got the tab on rear down tube for the hydraulic rear brake line. It's got the gussett on the left rear down tube. It doesn't have footboard tab on left side. Not sure bout the tab on the stress bar. A pic of the right side of the neck will tell the real story....bosheff

Upon further examination, it's got to be pre 70 cause it's got the lug for the jack. Really need to see a pic of the right side of the neck....bosheff

You may have to register there to get the manuals.

Looks like the studs would work ok.
