That makes it a 71 or later motor case.

Holy huge pic batman!

Frankenstien bike, parts is parts!

It appears to be a Pre-VIN frame.
78 + forks
73 - swingarm
70 - 76 cases
70 - cam cover

Maybe it is a 70 bike with a 78 front end?

Need a pic of the other side for more points of reference.

Are those 12 point head bolts?

Doesn"t look like any K model I have ever seen. Could be a fun sporty though.
