The '72MXs still had points. The '73s had true electronic ignition and from my experience they had some problems with them. I had an enduro mag and flywheel on my '72 for lights and low end. I laced up a DT175 front hub with a speedo drive so I could run a calibrated VDO speedometer. With a 15 tooth countershaft she'd run a true 82 mph. Plenty fast enough to run with the 250 Huskys of the day. With a little suspension work and a 2 ring piston it made a real woods bike.
