It sure looks like a '71 by the way the frame rails run under the seat, but then the seat looks like it fits next to the tank a little lower than a '71, maybe just due to use. The serial number will tell the tale.
Regardless of whether it's a '71 or '72, however, if it checks out well and is priced right, either model will serve you well and offer lots of good times. I love my '71 and it handles great. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and watch Plewsy's videos for a primer.
