The K prefix means it was a kit.

Good luck. The records were destroyed so they (T/C) won't be able to tell you anything. I called trying to find out when mine was made (serial # 49000). I'm guessing it was made in the 70's since it's so low.

The first Hawkens were released for sale in Aug 1970 I purchased mine new in 1975 # 70xxx so yours probably 73 or 74
