hey man if you mean the xs from your other post there are a few ways to id the parts. If the engine number starts with 256 its pre 73/74 if its 447 then its 74 onwards (there were some variations in Aus later on though that probably don't concern you). 256 engine mounts are different on the rear of the frame to 447 ones so that will narrow down the frame year for you as the motor should line up.
I don't know if you guys have compliance plates but all frames from 1970 onwards did here. The rear of the frame has a few easy give aways on the early models but since its gone...
if the forks/front wheel are twin disk they are later models and it looks like a 16" on the back which will be 76 or later.

Don't take this as gospel but hopefully this helps.
