I think they usually had higher bars but the only real way of knowing is by the frame number and try and establish from records. The carb jetting woul have been different on the US imports too.
This may also be of use to you... yours must be a very early model if it had originally only one disc up front

Even more desireable the fact that it's an early one with kickstart and all, best of luck with it, It deserves to be shined up to the nines...

They've usually got side reflectors if they're US models. Either on the fork legs or headlamp shell.
