Hello "Happy",

It would help if you posted more detailed photos: components, decals, lugs, dropouts, etc. If you know which components are original that would help to ID it and better determine the year; there may be date codes on some of them. I am assuming the rear derailleur and 7 speed freewheel are replacements. I would think it is of '70s vintage (maybe very early '80s, but I doubt it), but I am not familiar enough with the marque; just going by the fact that everything I can see appears to be clamp-on components, and over the top of the BB shell cable routing.
Take care,
Jesper
