Have a look through How Old Is My Bike? and then apply what you learn there. You should come very close to identifying its vintage. Pay closest attention the the Component Numbers for the fastest results.

Hope this is a help.

Early 70's.

Look at the catalogs from the early 70's and compare your components/color to what was offered in each year, and you'll nail it down pretty precisely.
