take a good look at the tag, that one appears to have a '74 seat, also I think the
'74's had the fuel pump located like the one pictured, while the '73's had the
pump mounted on the handlebar support. (iirc) and that does have '73 hood decals

There was a service bulletin to move the pump so it could be either.
You're correct though that the seat is not a 73. The stitching should have a diamond pattern.
