sekai classic frame 1974, serial number starts N?

I bought a sekai frame & fork.
But I don't know what frame it is.
It has sekai sticker, tange butted high-tensile, Made in japan at seattube.
Serial number is N740148 and color is dark green.
I think it doesn't have repainted.
Do you have some idea?

Double butted and high ten I'd hazard to guess the 7 stands for 1977 despite the N designation being an unknown. Apparently no decals intact etc?

The models 1000, 2000, and 2400 were all made with Tange single butted high-tensile, in the late 1970s.

The serial number is a little odd. Did you see the whole serial number? I think there may be another digit.

Where was the serial number located on the frame?

Pictures of the frame, decals and serial number would be helpful in identification.

I think he's the same guy from the other thread where you speculated it as a special, assuming it's stem shifters it'd be below a 2000. Do you concur?

sorry, but I do not remember the previous thread. Also, I'm not sure about which models had stem shifters.
