Looks to be a 1977. Built on the 116th day of that year, so in April. But the "F" on the other hand, would point to July. Sometimes the dates on the badge and frame don't always agree. Here's the catalog page.

+1 I believe Le Tour II was only 1977, Le Tour III 1978 and Le Tour IV 1979 (I own 2 LeTour IVs). Because of that pattern, these particular bikes are some of the easier bikes to date...
