Default Does anyone know this XR750?

So I just bought the Ex Tex Peel, Mike Boyes XR750 that failed to sell at the Bonhams auction at the Barber Museum last October.
Does anyone here know the bike and what I have gotten myself into?

If you feel you got a good deal, then all that's left is detective work. Have fun and enjoy!
