help identifying early 70's Vitus

I aquired this bike and I am planning on restoring it. It had a full shimano 600 gruppo and mavic open pro wheel set which I know is not original, but I am trying to find the year and model of the frame. It looks very similar to this 1972 Vitus Liberia, except mine has the rear brake routed through the top tube.



It says vitus on the bottom brake cable guide and on the derailer hanger. On the seat post lug is has the number 72. on the front headset lugs it says bcm on the bottom and B1 on the top, and I can see a faint SV933 on the main tubes, which I am guessing is Steel Vitus 933(tubing). but I can't seem to find any other vitus's that look like this.










any help or links to Vitus informational sites would be greatly appreciated
